Read more about spam filters - what they are, the way they work and ways to create one.
A spam filter is an app that stops unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s very important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you order a shared web hosting
plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate safety levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either get rid of undesired messages or re-send them to a third-party email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can read them again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in the account, you will be able to activate the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesired email messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also fine-tune the security level with a few clicks in case unsolicited bulk email messages continue to enter your inbox or the filter starts deleting genuine messages. Since you can choose whether the spam should be deleted immediately or re-sent to some other email address, you can create email@example.com, for example, and check all filtered messages there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email that you require. The email messages that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
