A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and monitors all inbound email messages in order to impede any unsolicited ones from entering a particular inbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to damage your computer. Spam filters typically examine the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the email or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of security for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each hosting plan, 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 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also truly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver first-class spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic emails are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be delivered to a designated mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
