Read more about spam filters - what exactly they are, how they work and how to create one.
A spam filter is a software application that hinders unasked-for email messages from entering a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s very important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux shared hosting
, you’ll be able to enable spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate security levels. If you continue to receive spam messages or the email filters start preventing authentic messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk missing a legitimate message that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and re-send the emails to a different email account where you can check them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you reach the decision to use the email service that is offered with our semi-dedicated servers
, you can keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox by enabling the five-level anti-spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be done via the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the hosting Control Panel and we rely on the powerful SpamAssassin filter to ensure that we offer the very best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different anti-spam level for each mailbox and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can read them at a later time in order to ensure that you will not miss genuine emails. Switching to a different level of protection or disabling the protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
