An email filter is an application that stops unwanted messages from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s really important to set up filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosts often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email account that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different security levels. If you still get junk email messages or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer top-level anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important messages won’t disappear.
