A spam filter is an app that blocks unsolicited email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s quite important to set up filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur 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 offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our website hosting plans, you will be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate safety levels. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email message that may be considered spam because of 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 different email account where you can check them at a later time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all undesired emails out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also tweak the level of protection with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case junk messages continue to enter your mailbox or the filter begins erasing legitimate messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted straight away or forwarded to a different email address, 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 need. The messages that the email filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
