An email filter is a software application that stops unwanted messages from entering a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is very important to set up filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each shared hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or delivered to a separate email account where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also truly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you reach the decision to make use of the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unsolicited emails out of your inbox by enabling the 5-level anti-spam protection that we offer with every semi-dedicated server package. This can be accomplished via the feature-laden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we employ the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we offer the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be erased or forwarded to a different email address where you can examine them at a later point in time in order to ensure that you will not lose genuine email messages. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks of the mouse.
