A spam filter is an application that prevents unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is rather important to use filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The safety of any email account that you set up in a shared web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. 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, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to some other mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a specific email account, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer exceptional spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, 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 5 different levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive unsolicited bulk email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make certain that important email messages will not get lost.
