A spam filter is a software application that impedes unwanted messages from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve chosen. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or redirected to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different levels of security – from very high to very low. If you still get spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased instantaneously or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that important emails will not get lost.
