A spam filter is an application that blocks unasked-for messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is really important to activate filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you get a hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five different levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either delete unwelcome messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more afterwards.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited emails out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also adjust the level of security with a couple of mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk messages still enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing legitimate messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or re-sent to a separate email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to proceed will still appear in your mailbox.
