Find out more on spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and the way to set up one.
A spam filter is an application that stops undesirable emails from reaching a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is very important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve picked. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the filter classifies as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the protection is also exceptionally easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to use the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated servers
, you can keep all undesirable email messages away from your inbox by activating the 5-level spam protection that we provide with each semi-dedicated server package. This can be accomplished through the full-featured Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased or delivered to some other mailbox where you can review them later to make certain that you won’t skip authentic messages. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also easy and requires a couple of clicks.
