An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to hinder any undesirable ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a different email address. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted messages away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also adjust the level of security with a couple of mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk emails still reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing genuine emails. As you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or delivered to a separate email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The emails that the email filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
