A spam filter is a software application that impedes unwanted email messages from reaching a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is extremely important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either erase undesirable emails or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can choose one of the five levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed out on an authentic email.
