What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How could you activate spam filtering?
An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound email messages in order to hinder any undesirable ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and if they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety 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 Web Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux web hosting
, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate safety levels. In case you still get unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can review them at a later time.
