A spam filter is an app that impedes undesired email messages from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is quite important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosts often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The protection of any email account that you set up in a website hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to some other email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific email account, you can disable it with only several 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 email addresses with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also adjust the level of safety with a couple of clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your inbox or the filter begins erasing genuine email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted right away or redirected to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you need. The email messages that the spam filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
