An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails so as to block any unrequested ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or delivered to some other email account where you can view them later, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all undesirable emails out of your inbox by activating the 5-level spam protection that we provide with each package. This can be done via the fully featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted or re-sent to a different email address where you can examine them at a later time in order to ensure that you are not losing authentic email messages. Switching to another protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks of the mouse.
