A spam filter is an application that blocks unwelcome messages from entering a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s extremely important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you’ll 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 couple of clicks, you can pick between five different levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom filters and either eliminate undesirable emails or re-send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unwanted emails away from your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each package. This can be done via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we provide the very best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to a separate email address where you can review them later to make certain that you won’t omit legitimate email messages. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
