A spam filter is a piece of software that’s installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming emails to block any unsolicited ones from entering a certain inbox. Several instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your PC. Email filters typically ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up in a shared website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to a separate email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver top-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic emails are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
