An email filter is a software application that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound emails to block any unsolicited ones from entering a given mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email message and when they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to another mailbox where you can review them later, so as to avoid erasing a genuine message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server account.

The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, authentic email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic email message.
