A spam filter is a software application that impedes unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can pick between five different levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either erase unsolicited messages or send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them once again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will not need to worry about junk messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the five protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, authentic email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you have not missed out on an authentic email message.
