An email filter is an application that impedes unasked-for emails 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 banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Web hosts often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The safety of any email account that you create in a cloud web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to each email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may omit a legitimate email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want an email filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about junk messages stuffing your mailboxes all the time, as you can make use of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few mouse clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine email messages get blocked, or if spam email messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special mailbox such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you haven’t missed an authentic message.
