A spam filter is a software application that runs on an email server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to hinder any unasked-for ones from entering a given inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email and in case they detect some keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting companies mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different protection levels. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can view them later.
