An email filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages so as to impede any undesired ones from entering a certain inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with a couple of mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts removing authentic messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted right away or redirected to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
