A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages to stop any unwelcome ones from entering a certain inbox. Several instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the intention to damage your PC. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and if they spot certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can select one of the five levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to another level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also remarkably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver exceptional spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between five separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine emails are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not get lost.
