A spam filter is a software application that runs on a POP3/IMAP server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages in order to block any undesirable ones from entering a specific inbox. A few instances of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea to infect your computer. Spam filters normally check the content of an email message and if they spot some keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the email message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam email messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five security levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the content of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or delivered to some other email account where you can read them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also unbelievably easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which ranks all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 separate levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive spam emails, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can read them later, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
