A spam filter is a software application that blocks undesirable messages from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email 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 hosting Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can pick between five different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each and every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of unwanted email messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once more after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all undesired messages out of your inbox by enabling the five-level spam protection service that we provide with every semi-dedicated package. This can be accomplished via the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we offer the very best possible security for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can view them later in order to make certain that you will not lose authentic emails. Changing the level of protection or disabling the protection is also easy and takes a couple of mouse clicks.
