An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound email messages so as to obstruct any unwelcome ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your PC. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The security of any email account that you create in a website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. 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 it gives to each message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to another mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with no more than several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you reach the decision to make use of the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated plans, you can keep all undesired emails away from your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each and every plan. This can be accomplished via the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased or re-sent to a different email address where you can check them at a later point in time in order to make sure that you won’t miss authentic email messages. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks.
