An email filter is an app that prevents undesired email messages from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is pretty important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a genuine email message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to some other email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only several clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also configure the protection level with a couple of mouse clicks if junk emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the email filter begins deleting authentic messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to some other email account, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The messages that the email filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
