A spam filter is an app that obstructs undesirable email messages from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is really important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up in a shared website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each and every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a legitimate message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with only a few clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can choose one of the 5 safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed an authentic email message.
