A spam filter is a software application that prevents unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s very important to use filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting companies frequently use 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 legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom email filters and either erase undesirable messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox. This functionality 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 time. You can also adjust the level of safety with a few clicks of the mouse in case junk messages still enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing genuine emails. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantly or re-sent to a different mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the email filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
