An email filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages in order to obstruct any unasked-for ones from reaching a given inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they come across specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our hosting plans, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of protection. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages or the filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to some other mailbox where you can examine them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver exceptional spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to make sure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
