An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming email messages to stop any unrequested ones from entering a particular mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters normally examine the content of an email and in case they detect particular keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The safety of any email account that you create under a shared web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to some other mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than several clicks of the mouse.
