A spam filter is an app that stops unwanted messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s pretty important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The safety of any email account that you create under a shared website hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to another email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you will not have to worry about junk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, authentic email 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 email messages to be re-sent to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you have not omitted an authentic email.
