An email filter is a software application that impedes undesired messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our shared web hosting plans, you will be able to activate spam filters for any mailbox that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 different levels of protection. In case you still receive spam or the filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk missing a legitimate email message that may be considered spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to some other email account where you can check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwanted email messages out of your inbox. This service is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also tweak the level of security with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case junk emails continue to reach your mailbox or the anti-spam filter starts erasing authentic emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted straight away or delivered to another email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
