An email filter is an app that stops unwanted email messages from entering a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is extremely important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a shared website hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a genuine email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to get junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
