A spam filter is a software application that hinders undesired messages from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s quite important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The security of any email account that you create under a shared hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip an authentic email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a given sender to a separate email account. In case you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with only several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with top-of-the-line spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin email filter, which classifies all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you enable the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive spam, you can increase the level, or if authentic messages are marked as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks and you can select if the filtered email messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that the messages that you need won’t get lost.
