An email filter is a software app that blocks unwelcome emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create under a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of security based on the spam score given to each and every message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may omit a genuine email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a certain sender to another email account. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a particular email account, you can deactivate it with no more than several mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can choose any of the five security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, genuine messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like and not to be deleted. Thus, you can check them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate email message.
