An email filter is an application that prevents undesired messages from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s quite important to use email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you set up under a website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each and every email message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a certain sender to another email address. In case you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a given email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated services, you won’t have to worry about junk email messages occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated hosting account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select one of the 5 levels of security – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, authentic messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and appear in your inbox. To take no chances, 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. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to ensure that you haven’t omitted a genuine message.
