A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to block any undesirable ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a genuine email, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-class spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, 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 select between 5 different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk emails, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need will not disappear.
