A spam filter is a software application that runs on an email server and keeps track of all inbound messages so as to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a particular mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain 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 clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to set up spam filters for any email account that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between five separate protection levels. In case you continue to get junk email messages or the filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another email address where you can examine them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about junk emails stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, genuine email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed out on a genuine email.
