An email filter is a software application that blocks unwelcome messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s quite important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each email in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a particular sender to another email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a particular mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver first-rate spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you continue to get spam messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are reported as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted immediately or if they should be delivered to a chosen email address where you can review them later, so as to ensure that valuable email messages won’t get lost.
