An email filter is an app that prevents unwelcome emails from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is really important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of security that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or redirected to another email address where you can review them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also configure the level of safety with a few clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk messages still appear in your mailbox or the email filter starts removing authentic emails. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or delivered to a different email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you need. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
