An email filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s very important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared hosting package, so if you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another email account where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also pretty easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts offer first-class anti-spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which ranks all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 separate levels of security – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if genuine messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased right away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can examine them later, so as to ensure that valuable emails won’t disappear.
