A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all inbound email messages to prevent any unrequested ones from entering a given inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and if they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate levels of safety. If you still get spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and redirect the emails to a separate email address where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide exceptional spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive spam emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be delivered to a designated email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that valuable emails won’t disappear.
