A spam filter is a software app that hinders unasked-for messages from entering a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it is extremely important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the five security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have selected. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different email address where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also pretty easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you reach the decision to use the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unasked-for emails out of your mailbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated plan. This can be accomplished through the feature-crammed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make sure that we provide the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be erased or re-sent to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time to ensure that you are not losing authentic messages. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires a couple of mouse clicks.
