A spam filter is an application that obstructs undesirable emails from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s extremely important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited email messages away from your mailbox. This functionality 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 wish. You can also change the protection level with a few clicks in case spam email messages still appear in your inbox or the filter starts deleting legitimate email messages. As you can select if the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
