An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming messages so as to stop any undesired ones from reaching a given inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your PC. Spam filters usually check the content of an email and when they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email 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-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our cloud hosting packages, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of protection. In case you still get spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and redirect the emails to some other mailbox where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not have to worry about junk emails cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several mouse clicks and you can choose one of the five security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get filtered, or if spam email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account such as [email protected] and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed out on a genuine email message.
