A spam filter is a software application that prevents unwanted emails from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is really important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – certain 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 mail server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux web hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. In case you still get spam messages or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic message that may be mistaken for spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five different levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a designated email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make sure that important messages won’t disappear.
