An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on an email server and keeps track of all incoming messages so as to stop any undesired ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email and in case they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks, you can pick between 5 separate levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either erase unasked-for emails or redirect them to a third-party address like where you can check them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also adjust the security level with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages still enter your inbox or the filter starts erasing legitimate messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased straight away or redirected to a different mailbox, you can create, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
