A spam filter is a software app that impedes undesirable emails from entering a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s rather important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of 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 server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering 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 several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom spam filters and either get rid of unasked-for emails or send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are labeled as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to make certain that important messages will not disappear.
