A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all incoming emails to obstruct any unsolicited ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email and if they detect certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up 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 a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to set up custom filters and either get rid of undesirable messages or send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver exceptional anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can review them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable emails will not get lost.
