An email filter is a software application that runs on an email server and monitors all inbound emails so as to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a particular inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they come across specific keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our shared web hosting services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of security. If you continue to get spam or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be blocked as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to some other email account where you can check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select any of the 5 protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted a genuine email.
