An email filter is a software application that prevents undesirable emails from reaching a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a cloud web hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to some other email account. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with just a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about junk emails cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, legitimate messages get filtered, or if junk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to ensure that you have not missed out on a genuine email message.
