An email filter is an application that blocks unwanted messages from reaching a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is quite important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to set up custom filters and either get rid of unwanted emails or send them to a third-party address like where you can double-check them afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 different security levels – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can read them later, so as to make certain that important messages will not get lost.
