A spam filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to obstruct any unrequested ones from reaching a given inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and in case they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud web hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five separate security levels. In case you continue to receive spam or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine email that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can examine them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all undesired emails out of your inbox by enabling the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be achieved through the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we provide the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to some other email account where you can view them at a later time in order to ensure that you won’t skip genuine messages. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks.
