A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for emails from entering a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is really important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you get a website hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can pick between five separate security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to create custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them again afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited emails away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also adjust the level of safety with a couple of clicks of the mouse if junk email messages still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing authentic messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or delivered to a different email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you need. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
