An email filter is an application that impedes undesired messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s pretty important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Hosting
Our hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the five protection levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the anti-spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email address where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also truly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also alter the level of protection with a few clicks of the mouse in case junk email messages still appear in your mailbox or the spam filter starts deleting genuine emails. As you can choose if the spam should be erased immediately or delivered to some other email account, you can set up, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
