A spam filter is a software application that stops unasked-for messages from entering a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s rather important to use filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom spam filters and either delete unwelcome messages or forward them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-rate anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different protection levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make sure that the emails that you need will not disappear.
