An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound messages in order to block any undesirable ones from reaching a given mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and when they come across certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can select one of the five safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate email address where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also change the protection level with several mouse clicks if junk messages continue to reach your inbox or the spam filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or redirected to some other email account, you can create [email protected], for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you require. The emails that the spam filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
