A spam filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and keeps track of all inbound messages so as to stop any unwelcome ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine message. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased straight away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to ensure that valuable messages will not get lost.
