An email filter is an app that prevents undesirable messages from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is very important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom filters and either eliminate unsolicited messages or send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you like. You can also configure the safety level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case junk emails still enter your mailbox or the filter begins removing genuine email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or re-sent to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
