A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unwanted email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with us and you pick any of our cloud website hosting plans, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate protection levels. In case you still receive spam or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine email message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to some other email account where you can review them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you will not have to worry about spam messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can pick any of the 5 protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, authentic emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed out on a legitimate email message.
