A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to obstruct any unwelcome ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your PC. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they spot specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The safety of any email account that you create in a hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through 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 and every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to another email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer top-level anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five different levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can read them later, so as to make sure that important emails will not disappear.
