A spam filter is an application that impedes unsolicited email messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is extremely important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our shared web hosting services, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any email account that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate levels of safety. If you still receive spam emails or the filters start preventing authentic emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection solution is ensured by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to another mailbox where you can read them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you use one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk messages filling up your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several mouse clicks 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 example, genuine emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you have not omitted a legitimate email message.
