An email filter is an application that obstructs unwanted messages from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is quite important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting
package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can pick between five separate safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either eliminate undesired emails or redirect them to a third-party email address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can examine them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you decide to make use of the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated hosting plans
, you can keep all unasked-for email messages out of your mailbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server plan. This can be achieved via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to make certain that we provide the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered messages should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can read them at a later time in order to make certain that you are not losing genuine email messages. Switching to a different protection level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
