A spam filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound messages in order to obstruct any undesired ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and when they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud web hosting, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of security. In case you continue to get spam messages or the filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can review them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-of-the-line anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting junk messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a designated email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t get lost.
