A spam filter is an application that hinders unsolicited email messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s pretty important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with every hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of every email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email address where you can view them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also exceptionally easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between five different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get junk messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate email messages are labeled as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased instantaneously or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important emails will not get lost.
