A spam filter is an app that hinders undesired messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is very important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail 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 couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either erase unasked-for email messages or forward them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can view them again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages away from your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also configure the safety level with a few clicks if junk email messages continue to enter your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing authentic messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased straight away or re-sent to some other email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you need. The emails that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
