Standard Spam Filter Setup

This is the Standard Email Protection with all Web Hosting and Email Hosting plans. Standard Email Protection provides basic, always-on protection and you can set it up manually from your Host Manager below. For Premium Email Protection click here.

You can block an email using spam filters. There are many definitions of spam, but one particularly useful one is the following:

Spam is the electronic version of junk mail, and has been around since the Internet was created. email filters are a way of filtering your email to remove unwanted mail based on a variety of criteria. You can block any sort of email, not just mail of a commercial nature. Blocked mail can be deleted automatically or sent to another email address or script. These filters are quite flexible - some examples are provided after the instruction on how to add a spam filter below. All filters are cumulative.

1. Login to your Host Manager control panel
2. Click Block Mail in the Mail area
NOTE: You can also enable Spam Assassin for extra protection. Click Spam Assassin under your Hosting control panel.
3. Click Add Filter
4. Click the required header field in the first drop-down list. These are the various fields in any email message.
5.

Click the required filter action in the second drop-down list. This action will act on the text entered in the third field.

  • equals - match the text exactly whole words only: “Credit” will block “Credit”.

  • matches regex - matches the text based on regular expression (regex) rules. Regular expressions are a powerful but complex area. You do not need to use regular expression filters for most circumstances.

  • contains - match the specified text in any circumstance: “porn” will block “porn” and “pornography”.

  • begins with - match the specified text when it is the beginning of a word: “porn” will block “porn” and “pornography” but not “teenporn”.
6. Type the filter text in the third field. This text is case sensitive.
7.

Type the destination for the filtered email in the Destination field. There are three separate types of destination:

  • Destroy the email - Enter Discard in the field.

  • Redirect to another address - Enter the email address to which to redirect the email.

  • Redirect to a script - Enter the full script path on the machine that hosts your website.
8. Click on the Activate button.
