A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages to obstruct any unrequested ones from reaching a specific inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each email in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a genuine email message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to another mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with no more than several mouse clicks.
