A spam filter is an app that obstructs unsolicited email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s quite important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our shared website hosting plans, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate levels of security. If you still receive spam messages or the spam filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to a different mailbox where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted messages out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also tweak the safety level with a couple of mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk messages continue to appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing legitimate messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be erased straight away or re-sent to a different email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
