What is an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How can you activate spam filtering?
An email filter is a software app that obstructs undesirable messages from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is rather important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with our company and you pick any of our Linux hosting packages
, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure five different security levels. In case you continue to receive spam email messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam protection service is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts deliver top spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which sorts all incoming email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a chosen email account where you can read them later, so as to make sure that important email messages won’t disappear.
