Find out about spam filters - just what they are, the way they work and how to set up one.
An email filter is a software app that stops undesired emails from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s rather important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting
plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom spam filters and either delete undesired emails or send them to a 3rd-party email address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can check them once more later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome messages out of your mailbox. This service is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the safety level with a couple of clicks if junk messages still appear in your mailbox or the spam filter begins erasing authentic messages. As you can select if the spam should be deleted straight away or delivered to a different email account, you can set up email@example.com, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not omit a message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to proceed will still be delivered to your mailbox.
