A spam filter is an app that impedes undesired email messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you order a shared website hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous email filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom email filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans offer second-to-none spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all incoming emails based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are reported as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that the email messages that you need will not get lost.
