An email filter is an app that impedes unwelcome emails from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is pretty important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate security levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited email messages or send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will not have to worry about spam emails clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, genuine emails get filtered, or if spam email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email.
