An email filter is an application that stops unwanted email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s pretty important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our shared plans, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate protection levels. If you continue to get spam or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be regarded as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to a different email address where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated plans, you can keep all unasked-for emails out of your mailbox by enabling the five-level spam protection service that we offer with each semi-dedicated plan. This can be achieved via the feature-rich Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be deleted or re-sent to some other email address where you can check them at a later time in order to make sure that you won’t miss genuine email messages. Switching to some other protection level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
