A spam filter is an application that stops unasked-for email messages from entering a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is very important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting providers often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of security that the spam 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 is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also rather easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about spam email messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, genuine messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic message.
