An email filter is a software app that prevents unasked-for email messages from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is rather important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either erase unsolicited emails or re-send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can double-check them afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also alter the security level with a couple of clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages continue to enter your mailbox or the email filter begins removing authentic messages. As you can select if the spam should be erased instantly or redirected to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email that you need. The messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
