An email filter is a software app that impedes unwelcome emails from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 safety levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Each email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or delivered to another email address where you can review them later, so as to avoid erasing a genuine message. Switching to a different level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also incredibly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver top-of-the-line anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between 5 different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can review them later, so as to make sure that valuable emails will not get lost.
