A spam filter is a software application that prevents unwelcome messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s very important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – specific words 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 mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or re-sent to some other email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the level of protection with a couple of mouse clicks if spam emails still appear in your inbox or the filter starts removing authentic emails. Since you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or forwarded to a different email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you need. The messages that the filter allows to go through will still appear in your inbox.
