An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails to obstruct any unwelcome ones from entering a given mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and if they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our shared hosting plans
, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of security. In case you continue to receive spam emails or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic message that may be blocked as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a separate email account where you can read them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also configure the level of safety with a couple of mouse clicks in case spam emails still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing legitimate messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted straight away or delivered to another email address, you can create firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit a message that you need. The messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
