An email filter is a software application that blocks undesired messages from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is pretty important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosts often use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our Linux shared hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different safety levels. In case you continue to get junk emails or the email filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping an authentic message that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a different mailbox where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can review them later, so as to make sure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
