An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming emails in order to prevent any unwanted ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux web hosting
, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of safety. If you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email message that may be mistaken for spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other email account where you can review them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you reach the decision to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers
, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your mailbox by activating the five-level spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server package. This can be done via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased or redirected to another email address where you can review them later to make sure that you won’t lose authentic email messages. Switching to a different level of protection or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks of the mouse.
