A spam filter is a software application that is installed on an email server and keeps track of all incoming emails in order to block any undesired ones from reaching a specific inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email and if they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing an authentic message that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate email address where you can review them later.
