A spam filter is an application that prevents unwanted email messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is really important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared web hosting, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different protection levels. If you still get spam or the filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping a genuine message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every account. Our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can select one of the five safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate message.
