A spam filter is a software app that stops undesired email messages from entering a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is rather important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of safety. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate undesired email messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once more after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages offer first-class spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
