A spam filter is an app that stops unwanted email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is pretty important to use filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting package from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 separate levels of safety. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom email filters and either delete undesirable emails or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you reach the decision to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you can keep all unsolicited email messages out of your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting package. This can be accomplished through the feature-rich Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we provide the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different protection level for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be erased or forwarded to a different mailbox where you can view them at a later time so as to make certain that you will not skip legitimate email messages. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and requires several mouse clicks.
