Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how you can enable them.
An email filter is an app that prevents unwelcome email messages from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting
package from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 separate levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to create custom spam filters and either get rid of unwanted messages or redirect them to a third-party address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can view them once more after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you take advantage of one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
, you won’t need to worry about spam emails stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with each and every account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can pick one of the five levels of protection – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, genuine email messages get filtered, or if junk emails go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account like email@example.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed out on a genuine email.
