An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound messages in order to obstruct any undesired ones from reaching a specific mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your personal computer. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email message and if they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five 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 Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another email address where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also surprisingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer second-to-none spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
