A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages in order to prevent any unasked-for ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and in case they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create under a shared hosting account with our company is ensured 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 offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a genuine email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unasked-for emails out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated server package. This can be done via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered emails should be erased or redirected to some other email address where you can review them later in order to make certain that you will not lose genuine emails. Switching to another protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks of the mouse.
