An email filter is an app that hinders undesirable messages from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s rather important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our cloud web hosting plans, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any mailbox that you set up. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 different security levels. If you continue to get spam or the email filters start preventing genuine email messages from entering your inbox, you can switch to another level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used email filters – SpamAssassin. If you don’t want to risk omitting an authentic email message that may be mistaken for spam due to its content, you can also create custom filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to some other email account where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more email addresses with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to enable the advanced, 5-level SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we offer and keep all unwanted messages out of your mailbox. This feature is accessible through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section and it can be activated or deactivated for any mailbox whenever you like. You can also tweak the level of safety with a few mouse clicks in case spam messages still reach your inbox or the anti-spam filter starts removing genuine messages. Since you can select if the spam should be erased instantly or forwarded to another mailbox, you can create spam@domain.com, for instance, and check all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not miss an email that you need. The messages that the email filter permits to go through will still be received in your mailbox.
