An email filter is a software app that stops unwanted messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up under a shared website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score given to each message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a genuine message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to another email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific email account, you can disable it with just several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unsolicited messages out of your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be done via the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased or delivered to a separate email account where you can view them later to ensure that you won’t omit genuine emails. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also easy and requires several clicks of the mouse.
