An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming messages in order to obstruct any unwelcome ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up in a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to some other email account. If you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all undesired email messages out of your mailbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be accomplished through the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we offer the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted or re-sent to a separate email address where you can review them later in order to make certain that you won’t lose authentic messages. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
