An email filter is an application that obstructs unwelcome messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s pretty important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Hosting
In case you decide to host your domains with our company and you pick any of our hosting plans, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five different protection levels. In case you continue to receive spam or the filters start preventing authentic messages from reaching your inbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam detection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk skipping an authentic email message that may be flagged as spam due to its content, you can also create custom email filters based on the body, the sender or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other mailbox where you can review them at a later time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you use one of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans, you will not need to worry about junk email messages stuffing your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can make use of the popular SpamAssassin email filter that we offer with every account. Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to activate the filter for any email account with a few clicks and you can select any of the 5 levels of safety – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, authentic emails get blocked, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered messages to be re-sent to a special email account like spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. In this way, you can go through them from time to time to make sure that you haven’t omitted a genuine email.
