An email filter is a software app that blocks undesired email messages from entering a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is extremely important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can pick between five different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted emails or re-send them to a third-party address such as where you can view them once more at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome emails away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also adjust the safety level with several clicks of the mouse in case spam email messages continue to enter your inbox or the email filter begins deleting legitimate email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted right away or re-sent to a separate email address, you can create, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
