A spam filter is a software app that obstructs undesired emails from entering a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create under a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to every message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to a different mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk emails filling up your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 security levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic emails get filtered, or if spam email messages go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed out on an authentic email.
