A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and monitors all inbound messages in order to stop any unasked-for ones from entering a specific mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your computer. Spam filters typically check the content of an email message and in case they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosting providers combine their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of security for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different safety levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate unasked-for messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages offer top spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 different levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages will not disappear.
