An email filter is an application that impedes undesired emails from reaching a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every web hosting plan, so if you host your domains with us, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the anti-spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to another mailbox where you can review them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also surprisingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages out of 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 mailbox at any moment. You can also change the level of safety with a few mouse clicks in case spam email messages continue to appear in your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins removing legitimate messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be erased instantaneously or forwarded to a different mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email message that you require. The email messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
