A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages to block any undesired ones from reaching a certain mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notices or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Spam filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and if they detect some keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosts mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several clicks, you can pick between 5 separate security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either get rid of unwanted messages or send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them again later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all unwanted emails out of your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also change the level of security with several clicks of the mouse in case junk emails still enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing authentic email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted straight away or redirected to a separate email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The messages that the filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
