Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, what they do and how you can activate them.
A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unwanted messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is extremely important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better security – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting
servers use one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the body of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or delivered to another email address where you can view them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also surprisingly easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers
, you can keep all unsolicited messages out of your mailbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server package. This can be accomplished via the feature-packed Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we rely on the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter to make sure that we offer the best possible security for our customers. You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered emails should be deleted or redirected to a separate email address where you can check them later so as to ensure that you will not omit genuine email messages. Changing the level of protection or deactivating the protection is also easy and takes a couple of clicks of the mouse.
