A spam filter is a software application that impedes unsolicited emails from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is extremely important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will 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 only a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on 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 erases a given message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited email messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited email messages away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the security level with a couple of clicks if spam emails continue to enter your mailbox or the filter begins removing genuine emails. Since you can select whether the spam should be erased instantaneously or delivered to another email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
