A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound email messages so as to stop any unsolicited ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our Linux shared hosting, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different security levels. In case you continue to get spam messages or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a genuine message that may be mistaken for spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also configure the safety level with a couple of mouse clicks in case spam email messages continue to enter your mailbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased instantly or delivered to a different email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The emails that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
