A spam filter is an app that blocks undesirable email messages from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – 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 SMTP email server. Web hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome emails away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the level of security with a few mouse clicks if spam messages still reach your inbox or the filter starts erasing authentic emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or redirected to a different email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
