An email filter is a software app that impedes undesired emails from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you pick any of our Linux cloud website hosting services, you will be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five separate safety levels. In case you still receive unsolicited bulk emails or the email filters start preventing authentic email messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most popular email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be considered spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the email message and redirect the emails to a separate email account where you can examine them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated services, you will not have to worry about junk email messages clogging your mailboxes every now and then, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer with each semi-dedicated server account. Our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks of the mouse and you can select any of the 5 security levels – from very high to very low. The level can be changed at any moment if, for example, authentic email messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your inbox. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered email messages to be redirected to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can go through them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed an authentic email message.
