An email filter is an application that prevents unwanted email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is very important to activate filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux shared web hosting packages, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of security. If you still get spam email messages or the filters start preventing authentic emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a genuine email that may be regarded as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to a different mailbox where you can review them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about junk messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose any of the five levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get filtered, or if spam 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. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed a legitimate email message.
