An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to impede any unasked-for ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your PC. Email filters usually check the content of an email message and in case they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate security levels. If you continue to get spam or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be mistaken for spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can view them later.
