An email filter is a software app that prevents unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s rather important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom spam filters and either eliminate unsolicited email messages or send them to a 3rd-party address like where you can examine them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to make use of the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated service, you can keep all undesired emails away from your inbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be accomplished via the full-featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted or forwarded to some other email account where you can check them at a later point in time in order to make sure that you will not skip genuine emails. Switching to another protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a few clicks of the mouse.
