A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all inbound messages so as to prevent any unwanted ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea of damaging your personal computer. Spam filters usually check the content of an email message and in case they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or re-send it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam messages recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to each and every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a genuine message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to another email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with only several clicks.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer second-to-none spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which ranks all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted straight away or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can review them later, so as to make certain that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
