A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming messages so as to stop any undesirable ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and if they detect specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each email message depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to a different email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
