An email filter is a software application that stops unwanted emails from entering a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is really important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the spam filter reports as spam should be erased or redirected to a separate mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also rather easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also configure the protection level with several clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages still appear in your mailbox or the filter starts deleting authentic email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantly or forwarded to some other email address, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you require. The messages that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
