An email filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound emails to prevent any undesirable ones from reaching a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can select between five separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can start 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 out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom filters and either eliminate unasked-for email messages or forward them to a third-party email address like where you can examine them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer first-rate spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be delivered to a designated email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need will not get lost.
