A spam filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to stop any unasked-for ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create in a cloud web hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit an authentic email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a couple of clicks.
