A spam filter is an app that blocks undesirable emails from reaching a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to activate 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 mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom email filters and either erase unwelcome email messages or redirect them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once more at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the five protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine email messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed a legitimate email.
