An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages so as to impede any unwelcome ones from reaching a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they spot specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate security levels. If you continue to receive spam messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to a different email account where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with excellent anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound email messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can review them later, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not get lost.
