What's an e-mail spam filter? How does one operate? How do you activate spam filtering?
A spam filter is an application that prevents unwanted emails from reaching a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s extremely important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting
plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different levels of safety. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either erase unwanted emails or send them to a third-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
If you use a semi-dedicated server
package from our company and if you set up one or more email accounts with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unsolicited email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account whenever you want. You can also alter the level of protection with several clicks if junk email messages still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins deleting genuine email messages. As you can choose if the spam should be deleted momentarily or redirected to another email account, you can create email@example.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you won’t miss a message that you need. The emails that the filter permits to go through will still appear in your inbox.
