An email filter is a software app that hinders undesirable email messages from entering a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s very important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to provide 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 SMTP server. Web hosting companies often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to another email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-class spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to make certain that the emails that you need won’t disappear.
