A spam filter is a software app that stops unasked-for email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is really important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score given to each message depending on various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to a different email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all undesired messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also adjust the level of protection with a few mouse clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages still appear in your mailbox or the email filter begins removing legitimate email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased immediately or delivered to another email address, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you need. The emails that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
