An email filter is a software application that prevents unwelcome emails from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can select between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom spam filters and either get rid of unasked-for email messages or send them to a third-party address such as where you can read them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans deliver top-notch anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are classified as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important messages won’t disappear.
