An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails in order to impede any unsolicited ones from reaching a specific mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The safety of any email account that you create in a web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also change the level of security with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam emails continue to enter your mailbox or the filter begins removing legitimate messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or delivered to a separate email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not omit a message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
