An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound email messages in order to impede any unasked-for ones from reaching a given 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 to infect your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and if they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create under a cloud web hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to a different email address. If you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only several clicks of the mouse.
