An email filter is a software app that obstructs undesirable emails from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is rather important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosts often make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email address that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to receive junk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping an authentic message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can review them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t need to worry about junk messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed a legitimate message.
