A spam filter is a software application that stops unwelcome emails from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s rather important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver 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 server. Hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 protection levels that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or delivered to a different email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also incredibly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all incoming email messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable emails will not disappear.
