A spam filter is an app that blocks undesirable email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s extremely important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

Our hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of every email, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also surprisingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with first-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you still receive junk email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to make certain that the email messages that you need won’t get lost.
