A spam filter is an application that obstructs undesirable email messages from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s rather important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either delete unsolicited messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer excellent spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive spam emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted right away or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable emails won’t get lost.
