A spam filter is an app that obstructs unwanted email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is pretty important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – certain words and phrases 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. Hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either erase unwanted email messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide excellent spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you still get junk messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email address where you can check them later, so as to make certain that important emails won’t disappear.
