An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all inbound email messages in order to impede any unwelcome ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and when they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The safety of any email account that you create under a website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss an authentic message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to a different mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than several clicks.
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 domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you like. You can also change the protection level with a few clicks in case spam emails continue to reach your mailbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine emails. As you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
