An email filter is an app that obstructs undesired messages from entering a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Hosting providers often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you select any of our cloud website hosting, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five separate protection levels. In case you continue to get spam or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to a separate email address where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also change the security level with a few mouse clicks in case junk email messages still enter your inbox or the filter begins erasing genuine emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased right away or forwarded to a different mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
