A spam filter is a software application that hinders undesirable emails from reaching a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you order a hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks, you can pick between five different security levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to create custom spam filters and either eliminate undesired emails or re-send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once again later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers, you will not need to worry about spam email messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the 5 levels of protection – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, legitimate email messages get filtered, or if spam messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can check them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a legitimate email.
