A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to hinder any unasked-for ones from entering a particular inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a cloud website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of security based on the spam score given to every email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a legitimate email, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to another email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can view them later, so as to make certain that important email messages will not get lost.
