An email filter is a piece of software that runs on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages so as to impede any undesirable ones from entering a specific inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email and when they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to another email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, 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 choose between 5 different levels of security – from very high to very low. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to ensure that important emails will not get lost.
