A spam filter is a software app that blocks unsolicited messages from reaching a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s rather important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited email messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like [email protected] where you can read them once again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver first-rate spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are classified as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable emails will not get lost.
