A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to impede any undesirable ones from reaching a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either delete unsolicited emails or send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also fine-tune the safety level with several clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages continue to enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts erasing legitimate emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or redirected to some other email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The email messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
