An email filter is an app that blocks unwanted messages from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is pretty important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared hosting, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of protection. If you still receive unsolicited bulk messages or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to a separate email address where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also tweak the safety level with several clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the filter begins erasing authentic emails. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
