A spam filter is a software app that blocks unasked-for messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s quite important to set up filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between five different levels of security. If you continue to receive spam messages or the filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email message that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to a different email account where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not have to worry about junk emails clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can choose any of the 5 levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email message.
