An email filter is a software application that stops undesirable email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – specific 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 server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or redirected to a different mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also rather easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting plan.

You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can check them later in order to ensure that you will not lose authentic messages. Switching to a different level of protection or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires a few mouse clicks.
