An email filter is an app that blocks undesired email messages from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s extremely important to use filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or forward them to a third-party email address like where you can check them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide exceptional anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different security levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a designated mailbox where you can read them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable emails will not disappear.
