An email filter is an app that impedes unasked-for email messages from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other email address where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can choose any of the five security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you have not omitted a legitimate email message.
