An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on an email server and monitors all incoming emails to hinder any unrequested ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email and in case they come across certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or forward 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-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either erase undesirable emails or forward them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can examine them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also configure the security level with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the filter starts erasing genuine email messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted immediately or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit a message that you need. The messages that the email filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
