A spam filter is an app that stops undesirable email messages from entering a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s rather important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either eliminate undesired email messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account at any moment. You can also configure the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to appear in your inbox or the spam filter begins removing authentic email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or re-sent to another mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss a message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
