An email filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails to obstruct any unsolicited ones from reaching a certain mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and if they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of every email, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also really easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide exceptional spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can read them later, so as to ensure that valuable emails will not disappear.
