An email filter is an application that impedes unwelcome email messages from reaching a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s extremely important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to some other email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also configure the level of security with several mouse clicks if spam emails still reach your inbox or the email filter begins deleting authentic emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased immediately or forwarded to a separate mailbox, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss a message that you need. The email messages that the filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
