An email filter is a software app that prevents undesired messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is pretty important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of security based on the spam score given to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may skip a genuine email, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a certain sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also change the level of security with a couple of clicks in case junk messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the email filter starts deleting genuine emails. As you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
