A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound email messages to prevent any unasked-for ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and when they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create in a shared web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score given to each email message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may skip an authentic email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to a different email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than several mouse clicks.
