A spam filter is an application that impedes undesirable emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s pretty important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with only a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not have to worry about spam email messages stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can choose one of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, authentic emails 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 redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email.
