An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming messages in order to prevent any unasked-for ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your PC. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve chosen. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with first-rate spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which ranks all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate protection levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can read them later, so as to make certain that valuable emails won’t disappear.
