Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how to enable them.
An email filter is a software application that obstructs unwanted email messages from entering a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s really important to use filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – 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 outgoing server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to every email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine email, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a different email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with just several clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
plans offer top-notch spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all inbound emails based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different levels of safety – from very low to very high. If you keep receiving junk emails, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are tagged as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered messages should be erased straight away or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can read them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
