An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all incoming emails to obstruct any unsolicited ones from reaching a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters typically check the content of an email and in case they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux website hosting, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate levels of security. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about junk email messages stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, genuine email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you have not omitted an authentic message.
