A spam filter is a software app that impedes undesirable messages from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s rather important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you choose any of our Linux shared web hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five different levels of protection. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages or the email filters start preventing genuine messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can review them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated services, you can keep all undesired emails out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package.

You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted or forwarded to some other email address where you can review them later so as to ensure that you won’t skip authentic email messages. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes several mouse clicks.
