A spam filter is an application that obstructs undesired emails from entering a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s rather important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux web hosting packages, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of security. If you still get unsolicited bulk emails or the filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be blocked as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and redirect the emails to a different email account where you can review them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the protection level with several clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing legitimate emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted right away or redirected to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email message that you need. The emails that the filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
