A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages in order to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a specific inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and when they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create in a web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited emails out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also fine-tune the safety level with a few clicks of the mouse if junk emails continue to enter your inbox or the filter begins removing genuine email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted straight away or redirected to a separate email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you need. The messages that the email filter permits to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
