An email filter is an app that prevents undesirable email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s extremely important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also adjust the level of protection with a few mouse clicks if junk emails continue to enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting authentic emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased momentarily or re-sent to a separate email account, you can set up, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email message that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
