An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound emails to impede any unrequested ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email and if they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between five separate protection levels. If you continue to receive spam or the filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can read them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver exceptional spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which ranks all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different levels – from very low to very high. If you keep getting spam emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are labeled as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can read them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable emails won’t get lost.
