An email filter is a software app that prevents unwanted messages from entering a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s quite important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide better security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can pick between five different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either get rid of unwanted emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like where you can read them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased immediately or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to make certain that valuable emails won’t disappear.
