An email filter is a software application that obstructs undesired emails from entering a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is pretty important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you select any of our Linux cloud website hosting service, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different protection levels. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and redirect the emails to a separate email account where you can view them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about junk emails cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select one of the five levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox like and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate message.
