An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all incoming messages in order to block any unrequested ones from entering a specific inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently reported 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 shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate security levels. In case you still get unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email that may be considered spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the level of protection with a few clicks in case spam email messages still enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts removing legitimate messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to another email account, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
