A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails in order to stop any undesired ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email and when they detect certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security 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 Website Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create in a shared website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to each and every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a certain sender to some other email address. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to use the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox by enabling the five-level spam protection that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be done via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we offer the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased or forwarded to a different email address where you can examine them at a later time so as to ensure that you won’t lose genuine email messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks of the mouse.
