An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound messages so as to obstruct any unasked-for ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies 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 clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our Linux hosting packages, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to receive spam or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another email address where you can view them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide first-rate spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a designated mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that valuable emails won’t disappear.
