A spam filter is an application that impedes unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is pretty important to set up filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can select between five different safety levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either eliminate unwelcome email messages or forward them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you won’t need to worry about spam email messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can pick any of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can check them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed a legitimate message.
