A spam filter is a software application that hinders unwanted messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s pretty important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosts frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also extremely easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan 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 enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also configure the level of safety with a few clicks in case unsolicited bulk messages still enter your inbox or the filter starts removing legitimate messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased momentarily or redirected to a different email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
