A spam filter is a software application that impedes unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is quite important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to every email in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to some other mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also fine-tune the safety level with a couple of clicks if junk emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the filter begins deleting genuine emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased straight away or forwarded to a different email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The emails that the spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
