An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages so as to obstruct any unasked-for ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting package from our company and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can select between 5 separate levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each and every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom filters and either get rid of unwanted email messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can view them once again at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated service, you can keep all undesirable messages away from your inbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be done via the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make certain that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can review them later to make certain that you won’t omit authentic email messages. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also easy and requires several clicks.
