A spam filter is an application that impedes unsolicited emails from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our cloud website hosting, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. If you still receive spam or the email filters start preventing authentic email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is ensured by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also configure 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 check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesirable messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also configure the level of security with several clicks of the mouse if junk messages still appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins deleting genuine emails. As you can choose whether the spam should be erased right away or delivered to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
