An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to stop any undesired ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver second-to-none spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a designated mailbox where you can review them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable messages will not disappear.
