An email filter is an app that obstructs unsolicited email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is pretty important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better safety – 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 outgoing server. Hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers use one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every cloud hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the content of each email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter considers as spam should be erased or re-sent to a different email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also amazingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also tweak the security level with a few clicks of the mouse if spam email messages still enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing genuine emails. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to a separate email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you won’t miss a message that you require. The emails that the spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
