An email filter is a software application that stops unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it is rather important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can choose between five separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of every email message that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom email filters and either erase unsolicited emails or forward them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can view them once again after that.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
