A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming emails to impede any unwanted ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and if they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our shared plans, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of security. If you still receive spam messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and redirect the emails to a different mailbox where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver first-class spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can read them later, so as to make certain that important email messages will not disappear.
