A spam filter is a software app that hinders undesirable messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s very important to set up filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the 5 safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or delivered to another mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email message. Switching to another level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our semi-dedicated packages, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse 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 example, authentic messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you have not omitted a legitimate message.
