A spam filter is an application that prevents unwanted messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is rather important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each cloud hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the 5 levels of security that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks 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 body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about spam messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, genuine email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed an authentic email.
