An email filter is a software application that blocks unwelcome email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is very important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you create under a shared website hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each email message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to a separate email address. In case you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver first-rate anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting junk messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that important messages will not disappear.
