An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails in order to hinder any unwanted ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up under a shared hosting
account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to another email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks.
