An email filter is an application that obstructs unasked-for emails from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you make use of our mail services, you will be able to set up 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 couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five different levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of each message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to activate custom filters and either eliminate unwanted messages or forward them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can read them once again afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts provide top-class spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which rates all inbound messages based on a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords, the sender, the subject, etc. When you enable the filter for any mailbox via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can select between 5 different levels of security – from very low to very high. If you still get spam, you can increase the level, or if authentic email messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the spam protection requires as little as two clicks of the mouse and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can review them later, so as to ensure that important email messages will not disappear.
