An email filter is an app that prevents unsolicited messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is very important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can select between five separate levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either eliminate undesired messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as where you can read them again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming emails based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
