A spam filter is an application that hinders undesirable messages from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is really important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you have selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or redirected to another email address where you can check them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also exceptionally easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated service, you won’t have to worry about junk messages occupying your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, genuine emails get filtered, or if junk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate email.
