An email filter is a software app that stops unsolicited messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s extremely important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans offer excellent spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all inbound emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between five separate levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a designated mailbox where you can check them later, so as to make certain that valuable emails won’t disappear.
