An email filter is a software app that runs on an email server and keeps track of all incoming messages so as to stop any unwanted ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and in case they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-rate anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all inbound emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive unsolicited bulk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to make certain that important emails will not disappear.
