A spam filter is an application that blocks undesirable email messages from reaching a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is pretty important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our shared web hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. In case you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a genuine email message that may be regarded as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about junk messages stuffing your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, authentic email messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to ensure that you have not omitted a legitimate message.
