An email filter is a software application that hinders unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our cloud plans, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of protection. If you still receive spam email messages or the filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to a different email address where you can view them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver top-level spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be re-sent to a designated email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to ensure that important messages will not get lost.
