A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all inbound email messages to impede any unsolicited ones from reaching a specific mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and if they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome emails away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the level of security with a couple of mouse clicks in case junk email messages still enter your inbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted immediately or re-sent to a separate mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The emails that the email filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
