What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does it work? How can you activate spam filtering?
A spam filter is an app that stops unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s rather important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosts often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting
package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you can choose between five different safety levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited email messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can examine them once again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts provide excellent spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which classifies all incoming messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the recurrence of particular keywords, the sender, the subject, and so on. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can pick between 5 different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still receive spam email messages, you can increase the level, or if genuine email messages are mistaken for spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantly or if they should be redirected to a chosen email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to ensure that valuable email messages will not disappear.
