An email filter is an app that blocks unasked-for messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux shared web hosting plans, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you still get junk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a genuine message that may be blocked as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to another mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated plans, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic email message.
