An email filter is a software app that stops unwanted emails from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s rather important to set up filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve selected. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to a different mailbox where you can read them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited emails away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also change the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case spam emails still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing genuine emails. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to another email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
