An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages so as to obstruct any undesirable ones from entering a particular inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our Linux cloud packages, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different security levels. If you continue to receive spam or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a different mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you reach the decision to use the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you can keep all unasked-for emails away from your inbox by enabling the 5-level spam protection that we offer with each package. This can be accomplished through the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we offer the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or redirected to another mailbox where you can examine them at a later time in order to make certain that you won’t miss authentic emails. Switching to some other level of protection or deactivating the protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
