A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound email messages to obstruct any unsolicited ones from entering a certain inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and in case they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can select between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either erase undesired emails or re-send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several mouse clicks and you can pick any of the five security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, genuine messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed out on a legitimate message.
