An email filter is a piece of software that runs on an email server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages so as to block any unwanted ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and when they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can select between 5 different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either delete unasked-for messages or forward them to a third-party address like where you can view them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with top-level anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if legitimate emails are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable messages won’t disappear.
