A spam filter is an application that blocks unwanted email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is very important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you choose any of our Linux shared web hosting services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any email address that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can switch between 5 different levels of security. In case you continue to get spam or the filters start preventing authentic emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a separate email address where you can view them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any mailbox with several clicks and you can pick one of the 5 levels of security – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for instance, genuine messages get filtered, or if junk email messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you have not omitted a genuine email.
