Find out more on spam filters - precisely what they are, how they work and how to create one.
A spam filter is an application that prevents unwelcome messages from entering a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is extremely important to set up filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting
package from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate levels of safety. 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 rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header field and the body of each email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either eliminate undesirable emails or forward them to a third-party email address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can read them once again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts offer excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter, which rates all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels – from very high to very low. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a designated email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to ensure that the email messages that you need will not disappear.
