An email filter is a software application that obstructs unasked-for messages from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our mail services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can select between 5 separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom filters and either delete undesirable email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted under the account, you will be able to enable the powerful, 5-level SpamAssassin email filter that we offer and keep all unwanted emails away from your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox at any moment. You can also alter the safety level with several clicks if spam email messages still enter your inbox or the spam filter begins erasing authentic messages. As you can select if the spam should be erased right away or delivered to another email account, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not omit an email that you require. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
