A spam filter is a software app that impedes undesirable email messages from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is rather important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Web hosts often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our cloud hosting, you will be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate safety levels. If you continue to get spam or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine email that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the email message and forward the emails to some other email account where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide first-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between 5 separate levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are blocked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can read them later, so as to make certain that important email messages won’t get lost.
