An email filter is an app that hinders unasked-for email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either eliminate unwanted email messages or re-send them to a third-party address like where you can check them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also adjust the security level with several clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages still enter your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or forwarded to another email address, you can set up, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
