An email filter is an app that impedes unsolicited email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every cloud hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can read them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about junk emails occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can pick any of the five protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if spam messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
