An email filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to prevent any unasked-for ones from reaching a specific inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Email filters normally examine the content of an email message and in case they come across particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of security based on the spam score given to every email message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
