A spam filter is a software application that impedes undesired email messages from entering a given inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is quite important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our website hosting plans, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate safety levels. In case you still get spam or the spam filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and re-send the emails to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox at any time. You can also change the level of security with a few clicks if spam email messages still appear in your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing authentic email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email message that you require. The messages that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
