An email filter is a software application that impedes unwelcome messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s very important to use email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you can select between 5 different levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either delete unsolicited messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different security levels – from very high to very low. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that valuable messages will not get lost.
