An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails so as to hinder any unsolicited ones from reaching a specific mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can select between five separate levels of security. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unwelcome email messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like where you can double-check them afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all unsolicited email messages out of your inbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be done through the feature-packed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we offer the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can review them at a later time in order to make certain that you are not losing authentic messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes several clicks.
