An email filter is a software app that blocks unasked-for messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with different parameters, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a legitimate email, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a certain sender to some other mailbox. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about spam messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you have not omitted a legitimate email.
