An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP email server and monitors all inbound messages so as to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux cloud web hosting, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of security. In case you continue to receive junk emails or the email filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can check them later.
