An email filter is an application that prevents undesirable email messages from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is pretty important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the five protection levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different email account where you can review them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also incredibly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated servers, you won’t have to worry about junk messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can select any of the 5 levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, legitimate emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them from time to time to make certain that you have not missed an authentic email.
