An email filter is a software app that impedes undesired emails from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s rather important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to get spam or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a separate email account where you can examine them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also configure the safety level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the email filter starts deleting genuine messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased momentarily or delivered to a separate email account, you can set up, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
