A spam filter is an application that impedes unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s extremely important to use filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create in a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score it gives to every email message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a given sender to a separate email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all inbound emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different protection levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that important messages won’t get lost.
