An email filter is a software application that stops undesirable emails from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is really important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will 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 no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between five different levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also alter the level of security with several clicks if unsolicited bulk emails still appear in your inbox or the spam filter begins deleting legitimate messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted straight away or re-sent to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you require. The messages that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
