A spam filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and monitors all inbound messages in order to impede any unwanted ones from entering a specific inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they detect specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a shared web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a different email address. If you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with just several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to use the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unwanted messages out of your inbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be accomplished via the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we offer the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased or forwarded to a different mailbox where you can read them later so as to make certain that you will not miss legitimate messages. Changing the protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of mouse clicks.
