An email filter is a software application that obstructs unwelcome email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or forwarded to another mailbox where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also change the level of protection with several mouse clicks if spam emails continue to enter your inbox or the email filter begins deleting genuine emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to a different email address, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email that you require. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
