A spam filter is a software app that is installed on a mail server and keeps track of all incoming email messages so as to obstruct any unwanted ones from entering a specific inbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or money, false bank statements or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the idea to infect your computer. Email filters usually check the content of an email and if they detect particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either erase the message or deliver it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain hosting companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracking organizations, so as to ensure better security for their customers. Such databases include patterns, email server IP addresses and other information about spam emails recently detected by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domain names with our company and you choose any of our cloud hosting plans, 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 switch between 5 separate safety levels. In case you still get unsolicited bulk messages or the email filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk missing a legitimate email message that may be mistaken for spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and redirect the emails to a different email address where you can review them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages provide excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the famous SpamAssassin spam filter, which sorts all inbound email messages based on a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the recurrence of particular keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between five separate levels of security – from very high to very low. If you still get unsolicited bulk messages, you can increase the level, or if authentic emails are tagged as spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the spam protection requires as little as 2 mouse clicks and you can choose if the filtered emails should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be delivered to a chosen mailbox where you can check them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable email messages won’t get lost.
