What's an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How could you activate spam filtering?
An email filter is an application that stops unwanted messages from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s really important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you get a shared hosting
package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can choose between five separate protection levels. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either delete undesired messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as email@example.com where you can check them once more after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts provide first-class anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming emails based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 separate protection levels – from very low to very high. If you still get spam messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine messages are marked as spam, you can decrease it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as 2 clicks of the mouse and you can select if the filtered messages should be erased momentarily or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can check them at a later time, so as to make sure that important email messages will not get lost.
