An email filter is a software application that stops unwelcome emails from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is pretty important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Web hosts often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or permits it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either erase undesired email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can view them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the emails that you need will not disappear.
