A spam filter is a software app that hinders unwelcome messages from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is pretty important to activate filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can select between five separate levels of safety. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either eliminate unwelcome messages or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the level of security with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case spam messages continue to enter your inbox or the filter begins deleting genuine email messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted immediately or delivered to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit a message that you require. The emails that the email filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
