A spam filter is a software application that blocks unasked-for email messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is really important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to some other email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer top-of-the-line spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which ranks all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 different security levels – from very high to very low. If you still get junk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased right away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can review them later, so as to ensure that important emails will not disappear.
