A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to impede any unwelcome ones from entering a given mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your personal computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the content of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also truly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be re-sent to a designated email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that the emails that you need will not disappear.
