An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages in order to stop any unrequested ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and when they come across certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can choose between five separate safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either erase undesirable email messages or re-send them to a third-party email address such as where you can check them again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package 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 anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also adjust the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse if junk email messages continue to enter your inbox or the filter starts erasing legitimate messages. As you can select if the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to a separate mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email that you require. The email messages that the filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
