An email filter is a software app that impedes unwanted emails from entering a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is very important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies often use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five protection levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to another mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted messages out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also adjust the level of safety with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam emails still appear in your mailbox or the filter starts erasing authentic emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to some other email address, you can set up, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
