An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on an email server and keeps track of all inbound email messages in order to obstruct any unwelcome ones from entering a given mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and in case they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each email message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a certain sender to some other email account. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also alter the security level with a couple of clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting legitimate emails. As you can choose if the spam should be erased straight away or forwarded to a different email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email message that you require. The emails that the email filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
