An email filter is an app that stops unwelcome email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s really important to activate filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting
plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five separate levels of protection. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email or allows it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also permit you to activate custom spam filters and either eliminate undesired email messages or send them to a third-party email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can view them again at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you will not have to worry about spam email messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can pick any of the 5 levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, authentic messages get blocked, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be forwarded to a special email account like email@example.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to ensure that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email message.
