A spam filter is a software app that impedes unwanted emails from entering a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s really important to use email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The safety of any email account that you set up in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score given to each email message depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a genuine message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to some other mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages, you will not need to worry about junk messages filling up your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select one of the 5 protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for example, authentic email messages get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special mailbox like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can check them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic message.
