A spam filter is an application that stops unwanted messages from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s really important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks, you can select between five different levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom email filters and either delete undesired email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you can keep all undesirable messages out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated server package. This can be achieved via the fully featured Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to make certain that we offer the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered messages should be deleted or redirected to a separate email account where you can read them at a later time so as to make certain that you are not losing legitimate email messages. Switching to another level of protection or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of mouse clicks.
