A spam filter is a software application that blocks unsolicited messages from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting packages, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you create. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of protection. If you continue to get spam or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular 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 configure custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you won’t need to worry about junk email messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks and you can choose any of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get blocked, or if junk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed out on an authentic email message.
