A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages so as to block any unsolicited ones from reaching a particular mailbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking statements or email attachments that contain malware sent with the idea of infecting your PC. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email message and if they spot given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers mix their own email filters with up-to-date databases from spam-monitoring organizations, so as to guarantee better security for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud web hosting packages, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email address that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different safety levels. In case you continue to get spam messages or the filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be considered spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can review them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you will not have to worry about spam emails occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, legitimate messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t missed out on an authentic email message.
