An email filter is a software app that impedes unsolicited emails from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can select one of the 5 levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are marked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be delivered to a chosen email account where you can view them later, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
