An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages so as to block any unwanted ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and in case they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-of-the-line anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can examine them later, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
