An email filter is a software application that runs on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to impede any unwanted ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of protection. In case you still get spam or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email message that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated plans, you can keep all undesirable email messages away from your mailbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be done via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased or delivered to another email address where you can view them later to make certain that you will not lose authentic email messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
