An email filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages to impede any unsolicited ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam 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 certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be re-sent to a designated email address where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that valuable messages will not get lost.
