An email filter is an application that stops unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s really important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the content of each email, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the filter labels as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email account where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can increase the level, or if legitimate emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable emails won’t disappear.
