An email filter is an app that stops undesired messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s quite important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the filter reports as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can examine them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also rather easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also alter the security level with a couple of clicks if spam email messages still appear in your inbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine emails. As you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to a separate email address, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email that you need. The messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
