An email filter is a software application that impedes unasked-for emails from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is rather important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our Linux web hosting packages, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different security levels. If you continue to get spam email messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, genuine messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed out on a genuine message.
