An email filter is a software app that blocks unwanted email messages from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s very important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can select one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can view them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting service, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, legitimate messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted an authentic message.
