A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound emails to block any unasked-for ones from entering a particular inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications or email attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of damaging your PC. Spam filters usually examine the content of an email and in case they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or re-send it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers mix their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently uncovered by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate email address where you can view them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide top-notch spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five separate levels of safety – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that valuable messages will not disappear.
