An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound messages in order to stop any unwelcome ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and if they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either eliminate undesirable emails or forward them to a third-party email address such as where you can read them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver top-notch anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased immediately or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important emails won’t disappear.
