An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound emails so as to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your PC. Email filters typically check the content of an email and when they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our cloud web hosting, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate security levels. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate email address where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also adjust the protection level with a few mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing genuine emails. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted right away or delivered to a different email address, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email that you need. The emails that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
