A spam filter is an app that impedes unwanted messages from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s rather important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate security levels. In case you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be considered spam owing to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to some other email account where you can examine them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will not need to worry about junk messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. 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. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you have not missed a genuine email.
