A spam filter is a software application that impedes unsolicited emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s extremely important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a shared web hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to some other mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a couple of clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver top-level anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 separate security levels – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can view them later, so as to make sure that valuable messages will not get lost.
