An email filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound messages in order to block any undesirable ones from reaching a given inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and in case they come across given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you create in a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer need an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with second-to-none anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be delivered to a designated email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
