A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unwelcome emails from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s very important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – 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 server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
Our hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the messages that the filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to a separate email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also extremely easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to use the email service that comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans, you can keep all unasked-for messages out of your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection service that we offer with each and every semi-dedicated server package. This can be accomplished via the feature-stuffed Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we use the powerful SpamAssassin email filter to ensure that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered emails should be erased or delivered to a separate email address where you can view them later so as to make certain that you will not lose authentic email messages. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also easy and takes a couple of mouse clicks.
