A spam filter is an application that obstructs unwelcome email messages from entering a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to a separate mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesired emails away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also change the safety level with a few mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing authentic email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to a separate email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The emails that the filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
