A spam filter is an app that prevents undesirable emails from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux shared website hosting service, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any email account that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. In case you still get spam messages or the filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and re-send the emails to a different email address where you can view them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails clogging your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can select any of the five safety levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic emails get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t omitted an authentic email message.
