A spam filter is a software application that prevents undesired messages from entering a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is really important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases 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 make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our Linux shared hosting packages, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different protection levels. If you continue to receive spam messages or the filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting a genuine message that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to some other mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any time. You can also tweak the level of security with a couple of clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages still reach your mailbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to a different email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t miss an email message that you require. The email messages that the filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
