An email filter is a software application that runs on an email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages in order to prevent any unwelcome ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our shared hosting, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of protection. If you continue to receive junk messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can read them later, so as to make sure that valuable messages will not get lost.
