An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming email messages to stop any unsolicited ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email and if they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five different safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom filters and either get rid of unasked-for email messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as where you can examine them once again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any time. You can also tweak the safety level with several clicks of the mouse if junk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing genuine email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to a different email account, you can create, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
