A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unasked-for messages from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s very important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to a separate email address where you can check them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated server account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get blocked, or if junk messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed a legitimate email message.
