A spam filter is an application that impedes undesirable email messages from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is really important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The safety of any email account that you set up under a hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit an authentic email message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to another mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a given email account, you can disable it with just a couple of mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-level anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between five different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted straight away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email address where you can review them at a later time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
