An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails so as to hinder any unwelcome ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email and if they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver 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 better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux shared website hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate safety levels. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping an authentic message that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to some other email address where you can view them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome emails out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also adjust the protection level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk email messages still enter your mailbox or the filter starts erasing legitimate emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased immediately or forwarded to a different email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
