An email filter is a software application that stops unwanted email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s really important to activate filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better safety – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with us and you pick any of our shared web hosting, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email account that you create. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate levels of safety. If you continue to receive spam emails or the spam filters start preventing authentic emails from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine email message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can read them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also change the level of protection with several mouse clicks if spam messages still appear in your mailbox or the filter starts erasing genuine email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be erased instantaneously or forwarded to a separate email address, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss an email that you require. The messages that the spam filter allows to proceed will still be received in your inbox.
