A spam filter is a software application that obstructs undesired messages from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is rather important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also change the level of safety with a couple of clicks if junk email messages continue to appear in your inbox or the filter starts deleting genuine emails. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted right away or re-sent to another mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The emails that the email filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
