An email filter is a piece of software that runs on an email server and monitors all inbound emails so as to impede any undesirable ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and if they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create under a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each and every message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with no more than several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver top anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive spam messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important email messages will not get lost.
