A spam filter is an application that prevents unwanted messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until 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 examines the header field and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom email filters and either delete unwanted email messages or send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver top-of-the-line anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different security levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that valuable email messages will not get lost.
