An email filter is a software app that is installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to hinder any unwanted ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to damage your PC. Spam filters typically check the content of an email message and when they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our Linux shared web hosting packages, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. In case you still receive junk emails or the email filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be considered spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to a separate email address where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you won’t have to worry about spam email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can pick any of the 5 security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email message.
