A spam filter is an app that stops unasked-for emails from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is rather important to set up filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s email server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can select between 5 different safety levels. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either eliminate unwelcome emails or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can double-check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated packages, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick one of the five levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, authentic emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email message.
