An email filter is a software app that prevents unwanted email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is rather important to activate filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the five protection levels that the 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 Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to some other email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer exceptional spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you still get spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are flagged as spam, you can lower 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 deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to make sure that the emails that you need will not disappear.
