A spam filter is a software application that stops undesired emails from entering a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is rather important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our hosting plans, you will be able to set up spam filters for any email address that you create. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of protection. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can check them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also change the safety level with several mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk email messages still enter your mailbox or the email filter starts erasing authentic messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted immediately or delivered to another email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email that you need. The messages that the filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
