A spam filter is an application that blocks undesired emails from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is pretty important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the email accounts 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 choose between five separate security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom spam filters and either delete unwanted emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide second-to-none anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which rates all incoming emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between five separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can view them later, so as to ensure that important emails won’t disappear.
