An email filter is an app that hinders unasked-for emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is quite important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you select any of our cloud website hosting packages, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of safety. If you still get junk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate message that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate email account where you can view them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about spam emails occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can pick any of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email message.
