An email filter is a software application that obstructs unwelcome email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s really important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our shared web hosting plans, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to receive spam email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a genuine message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to some other email account where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to make use of the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all unwanted messages away from your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated server plan. This can be done through the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted or redirected to another email account where you can check them later to make sure that you will not lose legitimate messages. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
