An email filter is a software application that runs on an email server and keeps track of all incoming email messages to impede any undesired ones from reaching a given inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and if they spot particular keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate safety levels. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails or the email filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t need to worry about spam email messages filling up your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can choose any of the five levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic messages get blocked, or if junk messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed an authentic email message.
