An email filter is an app that impedes unsolicited emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to enable filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you order a shared website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can view them later, so as to make certain that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
