A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to hinder any unrequested ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they come across specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also surprisingly easy.
