An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all inbound messages so as to prevent any unrequested ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine email. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are labeled as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can view them later, so as to ensure that valuable email messages will not get lost.
