An email filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming messages in order to block any unwelcome ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux shared hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any email account that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate safety levels. If you still receive junk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing an authentic message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and forward the emails to a different mailbox where you can examine them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired emails out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also configure the security level with several clicks if unsolicited bulk emails continue to appear in your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing legitimate emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased right away or forwarded to another email address, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
