A spam filter is an application that stops unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosts often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to each email message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a genuine email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to some other mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated plans, you won’t have to worry about junk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with every account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed a genuine message.
