A spam filter is a software application that hinders undesirable emails from reaching a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s really important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The security of any email account that you create under a website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a particular sender to some other email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a given email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with top-level anti-spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between five separate levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be re-sent to a chosen mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to make sure that important email messages won’t get lost.
