An email filter is a software application that prevents unsolicited email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting providers frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five different levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either get rid of unsolicited messages or forward them to a third-party address like where you can view them once again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-level spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of certain keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between five separate safety levels – from very low to very high. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails, you can raise the level, or if genuine email messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased immediately or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make sure that important email messages will not disappear.
