Find out more on spam filters - just what they are, how they work and the way to create one.
An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all incoming emails in order to stop any unasked-for ones from entering a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and when they come across given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip an authentic email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to some other mailbox. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only several clicks.
