A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming messages to stop any unwelcome ones from reaching a certain mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score given to every email in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip an authentic message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to some other email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

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 mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also adjust the level of security with a couple of clicks in case junk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the filter starts removing genuine email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased instantly or re-sent to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
