A spam filter is an application that stops unsolicited email messages from entering a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s really important to activate filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks, you can choose between five separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom filters and either get rid of unasked-for emails or send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to use the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services, you can keep all undesired emails out of your mailbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be achieved through the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to make certain that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered emails should be deleted or re-sent to some other email address where you can review them at a later time in order to make sure that you won’t lose genuine messages. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks.
