An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound emails to impede any undesired ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and in case they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux website hosting packages, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different security levels. If you still receive junk messages or the filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can review them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited emails out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also tweak the level of safety with several mouse clicks in case spam emails still enter your inbox or the filter starts erasing legitimate messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or forwarded to some other email account, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The email messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
