What is an e-mail spam filter? How does it operate? How do you activate spam filtering?
An email filter is a software application that hinders unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is really important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting companies often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
If you order a shared web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 different levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either delete unwelcome email messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like firstname.lastname@example.org where you can double-check them afterwards.
