A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all inbound emails to impede any unwanted ones from entering a given inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to damage your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and when they spot some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can select between 5 different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either erase unsolicited email messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your mailbox by enabling the five-level spam protection service that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be accomplished through the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be deleted or delivered to another email account where you can examine them at a later time to make certain that you will not miss authentic email messages. Changing the protection level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
