An email filter is an application that stops undesired messages from entering a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is extremely important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – 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 server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can select one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also remarkably easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under the account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages away from your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you wish. You can also configure the level of protection with a couple of mouse clicks in case spam emails still reach your mailbox or the spam filter begins removing legitimate email messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted right away or delivered to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you will not miss a message that you need. The messages that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your inbox.
