A spam filter is an application that impedes unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is extremely important to activate filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver top-level spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin email filter, which sorts all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on patterns and parameters, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, etc. When you activate the filter for any mailbox through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can select between 5 different security levels – from very high to very low. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic email messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can select if the filtered messages should be deleted instantly or if they should be forwarded to a designated email address where you can examine them at a later time, so as to make sure that valuable email messages won’t disappear.
