A spam filter is a software application that hinders unwanted emails from entering a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is rather important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you select any of our hosting services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate security levels. In case you continue to receive unsolicited bulk messages or the spam filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic message that may be blocked as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can read them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you won’t have to worry about spam emails filling up your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can choose any of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic email messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
