An email filter is an app that blocks unwelcome emails from entering a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is extremely important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The security of any email account that you create in a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 security levels based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on 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 afraid that you may omit a legitimate message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to some other email account. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with only several mouse clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwelcome email messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any time. You can also change the safety level with a few mouse clicks in case spam messages continue to enter your inbox or the anti-spam filter begins erasing genuine emails. As you can select if the spam should be erased instantly or forwarded to some other mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit a message that you require. The emails that the filter allows to go through will still be received in your inbox.
