A spam filter is an app that hinders unwelcome email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s extremely important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than several mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either delete undesirable emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated service, you will not have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, legitimate emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be delivered to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic message.
