An email filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s extremely important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create under a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to every message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to a separate email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired emails away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also tweak the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting legitimate messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantly or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The messages that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
