An email filter is a software app that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages so as to impede any unasked-for ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and if they detect specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can pick between five separate safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either get rid of undesired messages or forward them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once again at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to use the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all unasked-for messages out of your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with every plan. This can be achieved through the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted or delivered to some other email address where you can check them later in order to ensure that you won’t lose genuine messages. Switching to another protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
