A spam filter is a software application that stops unasked-for emails from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – 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 outbound mail server. Hosting companies often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either eliminate unwelcome emails or send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you will not have to worry about junk emails filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select one of the five security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate messages get filtered, or if junk messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed out on a genuine email.
