An email filter is a software application that prevents undesirable messages from entering a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s very important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a different email account. If you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also change the security level with several clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails continue to reach your inbox or the spam filter begins deleting legitimate emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to a separate mailbox, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
