An email filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score it gives to every email message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a legitimate message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with no more than several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound email messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you still get spam, you can raise the level, or if authentic emails are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can view them later, so as to make sure that important emails will not disappear.
