An email filter is a software application that prevents unwelcome email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to every message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may omit an authentic email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to some other email address. In case you decide that you no longer need an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
