An email filter is a software app that obstructs unsolicited messages from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every shared hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be erased or redirected to a separate email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the 5 safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special email account like and not to be deleted. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed out on an authentic email message.
