A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound email messages in order to impede any unasked-for ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if 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. Certain hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create in a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate email message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to a separate mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to use the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated hosting services, you can keep all unwelcome email messages out of your mailbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection that we offer with each plan. This can be done via the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we provide the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered emails should be deleted or redirected to a different email account where you can read them at a later time in order to make certain that you will not skip authentic emails. Switching to some other protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
