An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to prevent any unsolicited ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and if they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either erase unwelcome messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like where you can read them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesirable email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also tweak the level of protection with several mouse clicks if junk messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting authentic emails. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted immediately or re-sent to some other email address, you can create, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email that you require. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
