An email filter is an application that impedes unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it is rather important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate levels of protection. If you continue to get junk messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic email messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that the emails that you need will not get lost.
