A spam filter is an application that blocks undesired emails from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is pretty important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you create. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate levels of protection. If you still receive spam emails or the email filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most popular filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be considered spam because of its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to another email address where you can read them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about junk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks of the mouse and you can pick one of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if junk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make certain that you have not omitted an authentic email.
