An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound email messages so as to prevent any undesirable ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email and if they come across specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also rather easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between 5 separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can check them later, so as to make certain that important messages will not disappear.
