A spam filter is a software application that obstructs undesirable emails from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is really important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, 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 take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five separate levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either erase undesired emails or send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with second-to-none anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which ranks all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not get lost.
