An email filter is a software application that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages to impede any undesired ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and when they detect given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a cloud web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score given to each message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine email message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a particular sender to a separate email address. In case you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also alter the security level with a few mouse clicks in case junk email messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the filter begins removing legitimate email messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email message that you need. The email messages that the filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
