An email filter is an application that prevents undesired messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also rather easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse if spam emails continue to enter your inbox or the spam filter starts erasing genuine emails. Since you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or forwarded to another mailbox, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss a message that you require. The email messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still be received in your inbox.
