A spam filter is an app that hinders unwanted emails from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is rather important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our website hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate levels of protection. In case you still get unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most famous filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and re-send the emails to a separate email address where you can read them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you get 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 powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired messages away from 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 email account whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the level of safety with a couple of clicks in case junk emails continue to reach your inbox or the spam filter begins deleting genuine email messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased instantaneously or forwarded to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the email filter permits to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
