An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to prevent any unsolicited ones from reaching a given mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they spot specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. If you continue to get junk emails or the filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to some other email address where you can view them later.
