An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages so as to stop any undesired ones from entering a certain inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our web hosting service, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of security. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to some other mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
