An email filter is an app that hinders unsolicited messages from entering a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is pretty important to activate filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the 5 security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header section and the content of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the filter considers as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting services, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each semi-dedicated account. Our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select one of the five protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic messages get blocked, or if spam email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you have not omitted an authentic email message.
