A spam filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails to hinder any unwelcome ones from reaching a certain mailbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your computer. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some companies mix their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux shared hosting packages, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of safety. In case you still receive unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a separate email address where you can review them later.
