A spam filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound email messages so as to hinder any unsolicited ones from entering a given inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters usually examine the content of an email and when they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud website hosting packages, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account 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 levels of protection. If you still receive unsolicited bulk messages or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a different email address where you can examine them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to use the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your inbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated package. This can be achieved through the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted or delivered to a different email account where you can read them at a later time so as to make sure that you will not miss authentic emails. Switching to some other protection level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
