A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is really important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting companies often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can choose between five different security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either eliminate undesirable messages or send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver top-notch anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which ranks all incoming messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate protection levels – from very high to very low. If you still get spam messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate emails are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can review them later, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
