An email filter is an application that blocks unsolicited emails from entering a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s rather important to use email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each and every web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the content of each message, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select if the email messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or re-sent to another email address where you can review them later, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email. Switching to a different level or disabling the protection is also truly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all undesired emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also tweak the level of security with several clicks of the mouse if junk emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the filter begins deleting authentic emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted immediately or delivered to a separate mailbox, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit a message that you require. The messages that the anti-spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
