A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails to impede any unsolicited ones from reaching a certain inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Email filters typically check the content of an email message and if they detect given keywords or other dubious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to configure custom filters and either get rid of unasked-for messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can read them later, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
