An email filter is an application that blocks unwelcome messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s very important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks, you can pick between five different security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a certain email or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either delete unwelcome messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more afterwards.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated service, you won’t have to worry about junk emails clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for instance, authentic emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be forwarded to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you have not omitted a genuine email message.
