An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages to prevent any unrequested ones from entering a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of every message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve chosen. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to another mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the security level with several clicks of the mouse if spam messages continue to reach your mailbox or the email filter begins removing legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or redirected to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email that you need. The messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
