A spam filter is an application that hinders unsolicited emails from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is rather important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom spam filters and either delete unsolicited emails or forward them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you reach the decision to make use of the email service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all undesired emails out of your inbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with every semi-dedicated server plan. This can be accomplished through the feature-rich Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we offer the best possible security for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can choose whether the filtered messages should be erased or delivered to a different email account where you can read them later to make sure that you are not losing authentic email messages. Switching to some other level of protection or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
