A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages so as to prevent any undesired ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email message and if they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each email in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to some other email account. In case you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with just a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-rate spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be re-sent to a designated email address where you can read them later, so as to make certain that important emails will not disappear.
