Read more about spam filters - precisely what they are, the way they work and how to set up one.
An email filter is a software app that runs on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a specific inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters usually examine the content of an email message and when they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts 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 include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux shared website hosting
, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between five different security levels. In case you continue to receive junk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to some other mailbox where you can review them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted email messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also tweak the safety level with a couple of clicks if junk emails continue to enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing authentic emails. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or delivered to a separate email address, you can create firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
