A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound messages to impede any unasked-for ones from entering a particular inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they detect given keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The safety of any email account that you create in a shared web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to each email in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a different email account. In case you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with only a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide exceptional spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get spam emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not disappear.
