A spam filter is an application that stops unwanted emails from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email address where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also incredibly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you still get unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be forwarded to a designated email account where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
