An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails so as to prevent any unwelcome ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared web hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of safety. If you continue to receive junk emails or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting an authentic message that may be blocked as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can read them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited emails away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also alter the safety level with a few mouse clicks in case spam email messages still appear in your inbox or the filter starts removing legitimate emails. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to a different email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not miss a message that you require. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
