An email filter is a software app that stops undesirable email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is very important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can select between five separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either get rid of undesirable emails or forward them to a 3rd-party address like where you can view them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the security level with several clicks if unsolicited bulk emails still appear in your inbox or the email filter starts erasing legitimate emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or re-sent to another email address, you can create, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
