A spam filter is a software application that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails so as to prevent any unwanted ones from reaching a certain inbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and in case they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some web hosts combine their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of safety. If you continue to get spam emails or the email filters start preventing authentic email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a legitimate email that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate email address where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-of-the-line anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 different protection levels – from very low to very high. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate emails are labeled as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable emails won’t disappear.
