A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound email messages to obstruct any unsolicited ones from entering a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email and when they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux shared website hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate levels of security. In case you still receive spam email messages or the filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a separate email account where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with second-to-none anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can check them later, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t get lost.
