An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to prevent any undesired ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and if they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be erased or delivered to a different mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with first-rate anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased instantly or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to make certain that important email messages will not disappear.
