A spam filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails so as to impede any unwelcome ones from entering a specific inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and in case they come across certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to every email message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to a different mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted email messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk email messages still reach your mailbox or the email filter starts removing authentic messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to another mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
