A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unwelcome messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s very important to enable filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate security levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either erase unsolicited messages or send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can view them again at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesirable messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also tweak the security level with a few clicks in case junk messages continue to reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts deleting authentic email messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted straight away or redirected to some other email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss an email that you require. The messages that the filter permits to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
