A spam filter is a software application that impedes unwelcome email messages from entering a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s very important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with us and you select any of our website hosting, you will be able to set up spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. If you continue to receive spam emails or the spam filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic email that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can check them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about spam messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can choose any of the five safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
