A spam filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and monitors all inbound messages in order to hinder any unrequested ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and when they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you order a shared website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom filters and either get rid of undesirable messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them again at a later point in time.
