Learn more about spam filters - just what they are, how they work and the way to create one.
A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming messages so as to prevent any unwanted ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Hosting
servers employ one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also truly easy.

If you still receive junk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that valuable messages won’t disappear.
