An email filter is a software application that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails so as to hinder any unasked-for ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between five different security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once more at a later point in time.
