A spam filter is a software application that runs on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails to prevent any unrequested ones from entering a specific inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our cloud web hosting, you will be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of protection. If you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to a different email account where you can review them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to use the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unwanted emails out of your mailbox by enabling the five-level spam protection that we provide with every package. This can be done through the feature-laden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email account where you can read them at a later time so as to make sure that you will not miss authentic emails. Switching to some other protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks.
