An email filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and keeps track of all inbound email messages in order to obstruct any unrequested ones from entering a specific inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email and when they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our Linux hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of security. If you still get spam emails or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to a separate email account where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top-of-the-line anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
