A spam filter is a software app that prevents unsolicited email messages from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is really important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our website hosting plans, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five separate levels of protection. If you still receive spam or the filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic message that may be blocked as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can view them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the five safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, genuine emails get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t missed a genuine email message.
