A spam filter is a software app that hinders unwelcome messages from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s pretty important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or redirected to a separate email address where you can view them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also stunningly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide top-notch anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you still get spam messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a designated email account where you can read them later, so as to make sure that the messages that you need will not get lost.
