A spam filter is an application that impedes undesirable messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s extremely important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five separate protection levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive spam messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a designated mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important messages will not disappear.
