A spam filter is an application that impedes unwanted emails from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosts often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of protection. In case you still get spam email messages or the email filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-rate anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 different security levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased immediately or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
