A spam filter is a software app that’s installed on a POP3/IMAP mail server and monitors all inbound emails so as to block any unasked-for ones from entering a given inbox. A few examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea of infecting your personal computer. Spam filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and in case they come across given keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain web hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-date databases from spam-detecting organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their clients. Such databases include patterns, mail server IP addresses and other info about spam emails recently reported by these organizations.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of each and every message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a different email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Changing the protection level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks of the mouse.
