An email filter is an application that hinders undesired messages from entering a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is really important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can select between five separate levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either delete undesired messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address like where you can examine them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also change the level of security with a couple of mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to appear in your inbox or the email filter begins deleting authentic emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or redirected to another mailbox, you can create, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
