An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to stop any undesirable ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create under a cloud web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score given to every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to another email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you reach the decision to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your inbox by enabling the five-level spam protection that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be achieved via the full-featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be erased or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time so as to ensure that you won’t omit genuine messages. Switching to some other protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
