An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages so as to prevent any unasked-for ones from reaching a certain mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails 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 web hosting plans, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different protection levels. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to another email account where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five separate levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not disappear.
