What is an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How can you activate spam filtering?
A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and monitors all incoming emails to stop any undesirable ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux website hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate security levels. In case you still receive junk messages or the email filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting a genuine email message that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time.
