An email filter is a piece of software that runs on a mail server and monitors all incoming messages so as to block any unasked-for ones from entering a given inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention to damage your computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and in case they come across some keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our Linux shared hosting services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between five different levels of safety. In case you still get spam or the filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and redirect the emails to some other email account where you can view them at a later time.
