A spam filter is an application that hinders undesired messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on various criteria, such as the frequency of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to a separate email account. If you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a specific email account, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks of the mouse.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also adjust the level of protection with several mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk messages continue to reach your inbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or delivered to some other email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The emails that the email filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
