An email filter is an application that impedes undesired email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s pretty important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide 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 SMTP server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
In case you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux shared hosting packages, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate safety levels. In case you still get junk messages or the filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk missing an authentic email message that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can read them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans provide top-level spam protection guaranteed by the famous SpamAssassin filter, which sorts all inbound email messages based on a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of specific keywords, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate security levels – from very high to very low. If you still receive junk emails, you can increase the level, or if legitimate emails are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be redirected to a chosen mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that important email messages will not disappear.
