An email filter is a software application that impedes unwelcome email messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is quite important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s email server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between five different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either eliminate undesirable emails or forward them to a third-party email address like where you can view them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also adjust the level of protection with several clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk messages still reach your mailbox or the email filter starts erasing authentic messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to a different email account, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
