An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages in order to stop any unrequested ones from entering a given inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you select any of our hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of safety. In case you continue to receive unsolicited bulk messages or the filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesirable email messages away from your mailbox by activating the 5-level spam protection that we offer with each semi-dedicated server package. This can be achieved via the feature-laden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we provide the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered emails should be erased or re-sent to another mailbox where you can view them later so as to ensure that you will not miss legitimate email messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires several mouse clicks.
