A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails in order to prevent any unwanted ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and in case they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to a different email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with excellent anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you still get spam messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are marked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
