An email filter is an application that stops unwelcome messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is really important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can pick one of the 5 security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all cloud web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the email messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or delivered to some other email account where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid deleting a genuine message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also surprisingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers, you can keep all unasked-for emails out of your mailbox by activating the five-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each package. This can be achieved via the feature-rich Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to ensure that we offer the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered emails should be erased or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can read them later to make certain that you won’t skip genuine email messages. Changing the level of protection or disabling the anti-spam protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
