A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming messages in order to block any unwanted ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and when they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate email address where you can review them later, so as to avoid erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also exceptionally easy.
