A spam filter is an app that impedes unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can select between 5 different levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each and every email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either eliminate unasked-for emails or redirect them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages away from your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you want. You can also tweak the safety level with a few clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails still reach your inbox or the filter begins erasing legitimate emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or redirected to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email message that you need. The emails that the filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
