An email filter is a software application that stops undesired email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s quite important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver top-notch spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between five separate levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be re-sent to a designated email account where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important email messages will not get lost.
