Find out more about spam filters - what exactly they are, the way they work and the way to create one.
An email filter is an application that obstructs unwanted messages from entering a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s rather important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting
plan from our company and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you can choose between 5 different levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each and every email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either erase unwanted emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address like email@example.com where you can view them again at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
packages provide exceptional spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which rates all incoming email messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between 5 different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you continue to get unsolicited bulk emails, you can increase the level, or if legitimate messages are blocked as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered emails should be deleted right away or if they should be forwarded to a chosen mailbox where you can view them later, so as to ensure that valuable email messages will not get lost.
