An email filter is a software application that blocks unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s very important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between five different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email message or allows it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either delete undesired emails or redirect them to a third-party email address such as where you can read them again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to use the mail service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you can keep all unsolicited email messages away from your inbox by activating the 5-level spam protection that we offer with every semi-dedicated package. This can be accomplished through the feature-laden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to ensure that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered messages should be erased or re-sent to a separate email address where you can check them later in order to make sure that you will not skip genuine messages. Switching to a different level of protection or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks of the mouse.
