A spam filter is a software app that blocks unasked-for emails from reaching a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s really important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – 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 mail server. Web hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different protection levels. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be flagged as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to some other email account where you can examine them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also adjust the level of protection with several clicks of the mouse if junk email messages still enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins deleting genuine messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to a different email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss a message that you need. The email messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
