An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages in order to obstruct any unsolicited ones from entering a particular inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email message and if they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom spam filters and either delete unasked-for emails or redirect them to a third-party address such as where you can read them once more after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver first-rate spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five different safety levels – from very low to very high. If you still get unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to make certain that important email messages won’t get lost.
