An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails to prevent any unwanted ones from reaching a given inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email and when they come across specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up under a shared web hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score given to each email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to some other email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also change the level of safety with a couple of clicks in case junk email messages still enter your inbox or the spam filter starts removing legitimate messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased instantly or forwarded to a separate mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you need. The email messages that the filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
