A spam filter is a software app that prevents undesirable messages from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a shared hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email in accordance with different parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to another email account. If you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you reach the decision to use the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all undesired emails away from your inbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each semi-dedicated plan. This can be accomplished through the fully featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to some other email account where you can check them at a later time in order to ensure that you are not losing genuine emails. Switching to a different protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
