An email filter is an app that prevents unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is rather important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve chosen. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent erasing an authentic message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also truly 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 domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also adjust the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins deleting legitimate email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantly or re-sent to another email account, you can create, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you require. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
