An email filter is a software app that impedes unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each and every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either erase unasked-for messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to use the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting services, you can keep all unwanted messages out of your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be achieved via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we provide the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or forwarded to a separate email account where you can view them at a later time in order to make sure that you will not omit legitimate emails. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
