An email filter is a software application that impedes unasked-for emails from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create in a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate email account. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer top spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, 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 hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different safety levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be delivered to a designated mailbox where you can review them at a later time, so as to ensure that the emails that you need won’t disappear.
