A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all inbound emails to impede any unrequested ones from entering a given mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux shared hosting packages, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email account that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different safety levels. In case you continue to get spam messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and redirect the emails to a different email address where you can examine them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with second-to-none anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you keep getting junk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can check them later, so as to ensure that important messages will not disappear.
