An email filter is an application that blocks unasked-for emails from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s quite important to use email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every web hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email account where you can review them later, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the security level with several clicks if junk messages still reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins erasing genuine messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to a separate mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss a message that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
