Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, the things they do and how to enable them.
A spam filter is a software application that impedes unasked-for messages from entering a given inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our Linux cloud hosting
, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email account that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of security. If you still receive junk email messages or the email filters start preventing genuine messages from entering your inbox, you can change the level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate message that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also create custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to a separate mailbox where you can review them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted email messages away from your inbox. This functionality is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also adjust the level of protection with a few clicks if unsolicited bulk emails still appear in your inbox or the filter starts erasing genuine emails. Since you can choose whether the spam should be erased immediately or redirected to another mailbox, you can set up firstname.lastname@example.org, for example, and check all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email that you need. The emails that the filter allows to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
