An email filter is an application that obstructs unsolicited messages from entering a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s pretty important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the filter classifies as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable emails away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also adjust the level of safety with a couple of mouse clicks if junk messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting authentic messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted straight away or re-sent to some other mailbox, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
