A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to hinder any unasked-for ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the 5 security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also amazingly easy.
