A spam filter is a software app that stops unwanted messages from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s really important to enable filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting providers frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from our company and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. In case you start getting 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 very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either erase unwanted email messages or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can double-check them afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also tweak the level of safety with a few mouse clicks if junk emails continue to enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting authentic messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased instantaneously or redirected to a different mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email message that you need. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
