An email filter is an application that impedes undesirable messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosts often use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our hosting services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate security levels. In case you continue to get junk messages or the email filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to a different email address where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about junk messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed a legitimate email message.
