A spam filter is a software application that stops unwelcome emails from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is very important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosts often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 different protection levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either erase unasked-for email messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you decide to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unasked-for emails out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each plan. This can be achieved via the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we offer the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be deleted or re-sent to another mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time in order to ensure that you won’t omit authentic emails. Switching to a different protection level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
