An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails so as to obstruct any unwanted ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email and in case they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate safety levels. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails or the filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic message that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and forward the emails to another email address where you can read them later.
