An email filter is an application that impedes unasked-for emails from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is rather important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – 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 outbound SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can choose between 5 different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either get rid of unwelcome messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the security level with several mouse clicks if junk email messages continue to enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts deleting authentic emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased momentarily or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you require. The messages that the spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
