A spam filter is a piece of software that is installed on a mail server and ‘scans’ all incoming email messages in order to prevent any undesirable ones from entering a certain mailbox. Several examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notices or email attachments that contain malware sent with the intention to infect your PC. Email filters normally ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they detect given keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure higher levels of protection for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, mail server IPs and other info about spam messages recently revealed by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud packages, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate protection levels. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a genuine email that may be regarded as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can read them later.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you will not need to worry about junk messages clogging your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can choose any of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to ensure that you have not missed an authentic email message.
