A spam filter is a software app that prevents undesired emails from reaching a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is really important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score given to each email in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a genuine email message, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be delivered 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 omitted a legitimate email.
