A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for emails from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email address where you can check them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also really easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver first-rate spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, 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 5 different security levels – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important email messages won’t disappear.
