An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages so as to stop any unasked-for ones from entering a specific inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and if they detect given keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create under a web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a genuine email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a different email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the level of protection with a few clicks of the mouse if spam email messages still reach your mailbox or the email filter begins deleting genuine email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased immediately or redirected to another mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit a message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
