Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how to enable them.
A spam filter is an app that prevents unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s rather important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create under a shared web hosting
account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every email in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate email, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to another email account. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to make use of the mail service that is offered with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting
, you can keep all unwelcome emails away from your inbox by activating the five-level spam protection that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated package. This can be accomplished via the fully featured Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin filter to make certain that we offer the best possible protection for our customers. You can have a different protection level for each email account and you can choose whether the filtered email messages should be deleted or redirected to another email address where you can view them later to make certain that you won’t omit genuine emails. Switching to another level of protection or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes a few mouse clicks.
