A spam filter is a software app that prevents undesired emails from reaching a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is extremely important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either eliminate unsolicited emails or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer top-of-the-line spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you still get spam, you can raise the level, or if authentic emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
