A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound emails to impede any undesirable ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and when they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the email messages that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email account where you can read them later, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you reach the decision to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unwanted email messages out of your inbox by enabling the five-level spam protection that we offer with every semi-dedicated plan. This can be accomplished via the feature-rich Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted or forwarded to a different email address where you can examine them at a later point in time to ensure that you will not skip genuine emails. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also easy and requires a few mouse clicks.
