A spam filter is an app that obstructs unwelcome email messages from entering a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s pretty important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every shared hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can select one of the five security levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the messages that the filter reports as spam should be erased or forwarded to a separate email address where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also stunningly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also tweak the security level with a few clicks of the mouse in case spam messages still reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing genuine emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased momentarily or delivered to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The emails that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
