Read more about spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and ways to create one.
A spam filter is a software application that stops unasked-for emails from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s very important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our web hosting plans
, you will be able to enable spam filters for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate levels of safety. If you still receive unsolicited bulk emails or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from entering your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be considered as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to another email address where you can examine them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans offer excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which classifies all inbound emails on the basis of a spam score in accordance with patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk email messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are flagged as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted straight away or if they should be redirected to a designated email account where you can read them later, so as to make certain that important messages will not get lost.
