A spam filter is a software app that stops unwanted email messages from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it is extremely important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – certain 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. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish 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 web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to some other email account where you can review them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited emails out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also alter the level of security with a few clicks if spam messages continue to appear in your inbox or the spam filter starts removing authentic messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased immediately or redirected to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
