An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and keeps track of all incoming messages in order to block any undesired ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email and if they come across particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either erase undesired emails or send them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can read them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also alter the protection level with a couple of clicks of the mouse if spam email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the email filter starts removing legitimate email messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to another email address, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
