An email filter is a software application that obstructs unwelcome email messages from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is very important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can choose between 5 different protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either delete unwanted email messages or redirect them to a third-party address like [email protected] where you can read them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select one of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, genuine email messages get blocked, or if spam messages go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like [email protected] and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email.
