An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages in order to impede any undesired ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with us and you pick any of our cloud hosting plans
, you will be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate levels of security. In case you still get spam emails or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a genuine message that may be considered spam because of its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to a different email account where you can read them at a later point in time.
