A spam filter is a software application that stops unwanted messages from entering a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is pretty important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either get rid of undesirable messages or redirect them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them again at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited messages away from your inbox. 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 at any time. You can also tweak the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse if junk email messages still appear in your inbox or the email filter begins removing legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or forwarded to some other email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you will not miss a message that you need. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
