An email filter is an application that obstructs unasked-for emails from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s pretty important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting companies often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with exceptional anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important emails won’t disappear.
