A spam filter is an application that blocks undesired emails from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s really important to use email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our shared hosting plans, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different protection levels. If you still get spam messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesirable emails out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also alter the level of protection with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk emails still enter your mailbox or the spam filter starts removing authentic messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased right away or delivered to a separate email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
