A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on an email server and monitors all incoming emails to impede any undesired ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters normally examine the content of an email and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create in a website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to another email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with just a couple of clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited messages away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also alter the level of security with several clicks if junk email messages still appear in your inbox or the spam filter starts erasing authentic messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or delivered to another mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you need. The emails that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
