A spam filter is an application that prevents undesired emails from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s pretty important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux shared web hosting packages, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of protection. In case you still get unsolicited bulk messages or the filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be blocked as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and redirect the emails to a different mailbox where you can examine them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated packages, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each package. This can be done via the feature-loaded Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to ensure that we provide the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered emails should be deleted or forwarded to another email address where you can check them at a later time in order to make sure that you won’t skip authentic emails. Changing the protection level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires a few clicks.
