An email filter is an app that prevents unsolicited emails from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either get rid of undesired messages or forward them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans, you won’t have to worry about junk emails occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several mouse clicks and you can select any of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t missed a legitimate email.
