A spam filter is a software app that blocks unasked-for messages from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you get a cloud website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom filters and either get rid of unwelcome emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, legitimate email messages get blocked, or if junk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make sure that you have not missed a genuine email.
