A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound email messages to prevent any unasked-for ones from reaching a particular inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our Linux website hosting packages, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different security levels. In case you continue to receive unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email that may be considered spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to a separate email address where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all unwanted messages out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level spam protection that we provide with every package.

Switching to another protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of mouse clicks.
