A spam filter is an application that hinders unasked-for emails from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure better protection – certain 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 outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the content of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or redirected to some other email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the level of protection with several clicks of the mouse if spam messages continue to enter your mailbox or the email filter starts deleting legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased immediately or re-sent to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit a message that you need. The emails that the filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
