An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound emails in order to hinder any unwanted ones from entering a specific inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate security levels. In case you continue to get junk email messages or the filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can examine them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not have to worry about spam email messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t omitted an authentic email.
