An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails to block any unwanted ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up in a cloud website hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each and every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a genuine email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with only several clicks.
