An email filter is an app that prevents unsolicited messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s really important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five different security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either delete undesirable emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to use the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all undesirable messages away from your mailbox by activating the 5-level spam protection service that we offer with every semi-dedicated package. This can be achieved via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we provide the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted or forwarded to some other email address where you can examine them at a later time to make certain that you will not miss authentic email messages. Switching to a different protection level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes several clicks.
