An email filter is a software app that is installed on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages to prevent any undesirable ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email and when they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other info about spam email messages recently revealed by these organizations.

The protection of any email account that you set up in a web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to every message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on.

In case you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
