A spam filter is an application that prevents undesirable email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can pick between five separate levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to set up custom spam filters and either eliminate undesirable emails or forward them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also configure the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse if spam messages continue to reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins deleting genuine emails. As you can select whether the spam should be erased instantly or redirected to a different mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email message that you require. The emails that the filter allows to proceed will still be received in your mailbox.
