A spam filter is a software app that impedes undesired messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s quite important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain 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 email server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can select one of the five protection levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or delivered to another mailbox where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can choose any of the 5 safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic email messages get blocked, or if spam messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed a genuine email.
