An email filter is an application that stops undesirable email messages from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s very important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. If you still receive spam or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to some other email address where you can view them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about spam email messages cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the five levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, genuine emails 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 delivered to a special mailbox like and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t missed a legitimate email.
