A spam filter is an app that obstructs undesired email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s very important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts often use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create under a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed 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 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with different parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to some other email address. If you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only a few mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-class spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five different security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting junk messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a designated mailbox where you can view them later, so as to make certain that important emails will not disappear.
