An email filter is a software application that hinders undesirable email messages from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s extremely important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to a separate email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also configure the protection level with a couple of mouse clicks if spam email messages still enter your mailbox or the filter begins deleting legitimate messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or delivered to a separate email account, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not omit a message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
