What's an e-mail spam filter? How does it function? How can you activate spam filtering?
An email filter is an application that impedes undesirable emails from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
Our web hosting
servers employ one of the very best anti-spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the five security levels that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the spam filter labels as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other email address where you can view them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also extremely easy.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans deliver top-of-the-line anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all incoming email messages based on a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of particular keywords, the subject, the sender, etc. When you enable the filter for any account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can select between five different levels of protection – from very low to very high. If you keep getting spam, you can increase the level, or if genuine emails are flagged as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be erased instantly or if they should be redirected to a designated email address where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to ensure that important email messages won’t disappear.
