An email filter is an app that obstructs unwelcome messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a shared web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a different mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with just several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer exceptional spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic emails are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can check them later, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not get lost.
