An email filter is an app that prevents unsolicited messages from reaching a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s email server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with us and you choose any of our hosting plans, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With several clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different levels of protection. In case you continue to get junk messages or the spam filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your mailbox, you can change the level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and forward the emails to a different email address where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted in your account, you’ll be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome email messages out of your mailbox. This option is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you want. You can also adjust the level of security with several mouse clicks if unsolicited bulk emails continue to enter your mailbox or the filter begins removing legitimate messages. As you can choose whether the spam should be deleted momentarily or forwarded to some other email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered email messages there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email that you need. The email messages that the email filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your mailbox.
