An email filter is a software app that prevents unsolicited email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s very important to set up filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux cloud website hosting, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you set up. With several mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure five different protection levels. If you still receive junk emails or the email filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our anti-spam service is guaranteed by one of the most popular spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be classified as spam owing to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to a separate email address where you can read them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you use a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all undesirable emails out of your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you wish. You can also configure the safety level with a couple of clicks of the mouse in case junk email messages continue to reach your mailbox or the filter begins deleting authentic email messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted momentarily or delivered to some other email address, you can set up, for instance, and view all filtered email messages there, so as to make sure that you won’t omit an email that you require. The messages that the filter permits to go through will still be delivered to your inbox.
