Get familiar with e-mail spam filters, how they work and how you can activate them.
An email filter is a software app that’s installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all incoming messages in order to stop any unwanted ones from reaching a specific mailbox. A few examples of such emails would be: offers for pills or cash, false banking statements or attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to infect your personal computer. Email filters usually ‘scan’ the content of an email message and when they spot certain keywords or other dubious content, they either erase the email message or redirect it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Some hosting providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee better protection for their clients. Such databases include patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting
plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between five separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level till you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either delete unsolicited email messages or redirect them to a third-party email address such as email@example.com where you can examine them again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to make use of the mail service that comes with our semi-dedicated plans
, you can keep all unwanted messages out of your inbox by activating the 5-level anti-spam protection service that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated hosting plan. This can be done via the feature-ridden Email Manager section of the Control Panel and we employ the advanced SpamAssassin email filter to make sure that we provide the best possible protection for our clients. You can have a different level of protection for each email account and you can select whether the filtered email messages should be erased or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can examine them later to ensure that you won’t skip genuine email messages. Switching to a different level of protection or disabling the spam protection is also easy and takes several clicks of the mouse.
