Learn more about spam filters - precisely what they are, the way they work and the ways to create one.
A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unwelcome email messages from entering a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it is rather important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – certain 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. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting
package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a few clicks, you can select between 5 separate safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either erase unwelcome emails or forward them to a third-party email address like email@example.com where you can view them once again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all undesirable email messages out of your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also fine-tune the protection level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case spam messages still appear in your mailbox or the email filter begins removing genuine messages. Since you can select whether the spam should be deleted instantaneously or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can set up firstname.lastname@example.org, for instance, and view all filtered messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The messages that the spam filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
