An email filter is a software app that obstructs unwelcome emails from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it is extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – specific 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 mail server. Web hosting providers frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to every email message in accordance with different parameters, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you won’t have to worry about spam messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you have not missed a legitimate email message.
