A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on an email server and keeps track of all inbound messages so as to stop any undesired ones from entering a given inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your computer. Email filters normally check the content of an email message and if they come across some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting package from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can select between five different levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either get rid of unasked-for emails or forward them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can read them again at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages clogging your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t missed an authentic email.
