An email filter is a software application that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming emails so as to hinder any unasked-for ones from entering a particular inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and if they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our web hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different protection levels. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic message that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to another email account where you can check them later.
