An email filter is a software app that impedes undesirable email messages from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is quite important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a legitimate message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to some other email address. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with no more than several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with first-rate anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the messages that you need won’t disappear.
