A spam filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages so as to prevent any unwelcome ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and in case they come across specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate protection levels. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails or the email filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic message that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a different email account where you can view them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited emails out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also change the level of protection with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails still reach your inbox or the spam filter starts deleting authentic emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or forwarded to some other email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email message that you require. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
