An email filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages so as to stop any unrequested ones from entering a specific inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our shared website hosting services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different levels of safety. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a separate email account where you can review them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also tweak the level of safety with a couple of mouse clicks in case junk messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing genuine messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted right away or redirected to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you need. The messages that the spam filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
