An email filter is a software application that hinders unsolicited emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is pretty important to activate filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score given to each message in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate email, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to a separate email account. In case you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with no more than several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver top-class anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that valuable emails will not get lost.
