A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on an email server and monitors all incoming messages so as to obstruct any unsolicited ones from entering a given mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email and when they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate levels of security. If you continue to get junk messages or the filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later point in 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’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also tweak the level of protection with several clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk email messages still reach your inbox or the spam filter starts deleting genuine emails. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased immediately or delivered to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email that you require. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
