A spam filter is a software app that prevents unwanted emails from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it is pretty important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create in a web hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip an authentic email, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts come with exceptional spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 different safety levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are classified as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need won’t disappear.
