An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all incoming email messages to stop any undesired ones from reaching a specific mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to infect your computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our Linux website hosting, you will be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different protection levels. In case you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be mistaken for spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can read them at a later time.
