An email filter is a software application that impedes unwelcome emails from entering a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s rather important to use email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you order a cloud hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you can select between five separate levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually boost the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either erase undesirable messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like spam@domain.com where you can read them once more at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you create one or more email addresses with any of the domain names hosted in your account, you’ll be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we offer and keep all unwelcome emails away from your mailbox. This functionality is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you wish. You can also fine-tune the protection level with a few clicks if spam emails continue to appear in your mailbox or the anti-spam filter begins deleting genuine messages. Since you can choose if the spam should be deleted immediately or delivered to some other email account, you can set up spam@domain.com, for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make sure that you will not omit an email message that you require. The emails that the anti-spam filter allows to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
