An email filter is an app that stops unwanted emails from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s very important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our shared services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of protection. In case you continue to receive spam emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email message that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to some other mailbox where you can review them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different security levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased instantly or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the messages that you need will not disappear.
