A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming email messages to hinder any unwelcome ones from reaching a given inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered 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 enable spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of safety. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver excellent spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
