An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming emails to block any unasked-for ones from entering a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and when they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to another email address. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given email account, you can disable it with no more than several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer first-rate anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable email messages will not get lost.
