A spam filter is a software application that hinders unwelcome email messages from entering a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words 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 email server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the five levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve chosen. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be erased or redirected to another email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans provide first-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all incoming emails based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are classified as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted right away or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable messages won’t get lost.
