An email filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming emails so as to stop any undesirable ones from reaching a given mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email and in case they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our shared web hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different safety levels. If you still receive spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing an authentic message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to some other email address where you can examine them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you keep getting junk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased instantly or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that important messages will not disappear.
