An email filter is an app that impedes unwelcome messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s rather important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain 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 outbound email server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five protection levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be erased or delivered to a different mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer excellent spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different levels of security – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can read them later, so as to make sure that the emails that you need will not disappear.
