An email filter is a software application that runs on an email server and monitors all incoming email messages in order to hinder any undesired ones from entering a particular inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email and in case they spot specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either delete unwelcome messages or forward them to a third-party address such as where you can check them once more later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any time. You can also configure the level of safety with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam emails still reach your inbox or the spam filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased instantly or re-sent to a separate email account, you can create, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
