A spam filter is a software app that prevents unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s quite important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have selected. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also quite easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver excellent spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be forwarded to a designated email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable messages won’t get lost.
