An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails so as to impede any undesired ones from entering a given inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your PC. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and when they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any email account that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to a separate email account. In case you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer exceptional spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased instantly or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important email messages won’t disappear.
