An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all inbound messages to stop any unwanted ones from entering a specific inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters usually examine the content of an email and if they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our Linux website hosting, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. In case you continue to get spam messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a separate email account where you can check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between five separate levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can check them later, so as to make certain that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
