A spam filter is an application that obstructs undesired email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a separate email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired email messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any moment. You can also fine-tune the security level with a few clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your inbox or the email filter begins erasing legitimate email messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted right away or forwarded to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss an email that you require. The emails that the spam filter allows to go through will still appear in your inbox.
