A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to block any unrequested ones from reaching a specific inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five different protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or allows it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom filters and either erase unasked-for messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unasked-for emails out of your inbox by activating the 5-level spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be accomplished through the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be erased or redirected to some other mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time to make sure that you will not miss legitimate emails. Switching to a different protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires a few mouse clicks.
