An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on an email server and keeps track of all inbound emails to impede any undesired ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and in case they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our cloud services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection 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 five separate protection levels. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also configure the level of security with a few clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing genuine email messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to some other email address, you can set up, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The emails that the email filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
