A spam filter is a software application that impedes undesirable emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s really important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting providers often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you set up under a shared hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score given to each and every message depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails away from your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also change the safety level with several clicks of the mouse in case spam emails still appear in your mailbox or the email filter begins deleting genuine emails. As you can select whether the spam should be deleted immediately or redirected to a separate mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
