An email filter is a software application that obstructs undesired email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is really important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting companies often make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up in a cloud website hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to another email address. If you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any time. You can also alter the level of security with several clicks if junk messages continue to enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing genuine messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased straight away or delivered to another mailbox, you can set up, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email that you need. The messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
