A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages so as to stop any unrequested ones from reaching a particular inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and when they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you select any of our shared website hosting, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate security levels. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages or the filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a separate email address where you can examine them later.
