A spam filter is a software application that impedes undesired messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is extremely important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each message, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or delivered to a different email address where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also amazingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to use the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox by enabling the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each and every package. This can be accomplished via the full-featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we use the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted or delivered to a separate email account where you can review them at a later point in time so as to make sure that you won’t lose genuine email messages. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of mouse clicks.
