An email filter is a software app that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails to prevent any undesired ones from entering a specific mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our website hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different levels of safety. If you continue to receive junk messages or the email filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about spam emails clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can pick one of the five protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like [email protected] and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed out on an authentic email message.
