An email filter is an app that blocks unwelcome emails from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is extremely important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose if the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can read them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also really easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you create one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin email filter that we provide and keep all undesired emails away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also configure the level of safety with several clicks of the mouse in case unsolicited bulk emails continue to reach your mailbox or the filter starts erasing authentic emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased straight away or re-sent to some other mailbox, you can set up, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email message that you require. The messages that the spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
