A spam filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all incoming emails in order to obstruct any unasked-for ones from entering a certain inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and if they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The security of any email account that you create under a cloud web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a legitimate email message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to another mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks.
