A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming messages to impede any unwanted ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create under a shared website hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a genuine email message, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a given email account, you can disable it with just a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get junk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a designated mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages won’t get lost.
