A spam filter is a software application that is installed on a mail server and monitors all incoming email messages to obstruct any unwanted ones from reaching a particular mailbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false bank statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect specific keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers mix their own filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to guarantee better safety for their customers. Such databases include patterns, mail server IPs and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose if the email messages that the spam filter marks as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also very easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server packages provide top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased straight away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can view them later, so as to make sure that important emails will not get lost.
