A spam filter is an app that hinders unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can view them again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also configure the safety level with a few clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting legitimate emails. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased momentarily or delivered to a different email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
