A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unasked-for emails from entering a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s quite important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Web hosts often make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score it gives to every email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to another email address. In case you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a given email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited messages out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also change the safety level with a couple of mouse clicks if spam email messages still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing authentic messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or delivered to a different email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit a message that you need. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
