A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and keeps track of all incoming email messages in order to impede any undesired ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your PC. Spam filters usually check the content of an email and in case they spot given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five different security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each and every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all undesired messages away from your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we offer with every package. This can be accomplished via the feature-laden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to a different email address where you can read them at a later time in order to make certain that you won’t skip authentic emails. Changing the protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a few clicks of the mouse.
