An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages so as to block any undesired ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and when they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different protection levels. If you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to another email address where you can read them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated plans, you can keep all unwelcome email messages away from your mailbox by activating the five-level spam protection that we offer with every semi-dedicated plan. This can be done via the full-featured Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be erased or re-sent to a different email account where you can view them at a later point in time in order to make sure that you won’t miss genuine email messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
