An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming messages so as to stop any unrequested ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they come across given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate safety levels. In case you continue to get spam email messages or the filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a genuine email that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to some other mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesired email messages away from your mailbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each semi-dedicated server plan. This can be done via the full-featured Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased or redirected to a different email address where you can review them at a later time so as to ensure that you are not losing authentic emails. Changing the level of protection or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of mouse clicks.
