A spam filter is an application that stops unsolicited emails from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is quite important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our shared web hosting plans, you’ll be able to set up 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 switch between 5 different security levels. If you still get junk messages or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing an authentic message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to a separate mailbox where you can view them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with top spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which rates all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five different levels of protection – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if legitimate email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires 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 re-sent to a designated email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to make certain that important messages will not get lost.
