A spam filter is a software application that hinders unwanted emails from entering a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s really important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create under a shared hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given 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 disable it with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated service, you will not have to worry about spam messages clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can choose any of the five protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to ensure that you have not missed an authentic message.
