A spam filter is an application that prevents undesired messages from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is quite important to use email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domain names with us and you select any of our Linux cloud hosting packages, you will be able to set up spam filters for any mailbox that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate security levels. If you still receive spam emails or the filters start preventing authentic emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a genuine email message that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to another email account where you can check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about spam emails stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick one of the five safety levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make sure that you have not omitted a legitimate message.
