A spam filter is a software application that blocks unwanted email messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s quite important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you select any of our shared hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different safety levels. In case you still get spam or the filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to some other email account where you can view them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired email messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also configure the safety level with several clicks in case junk messages still reach your mailbox or the filter begins deleting genuine emails. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted instantaneously or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
