An email filter is a software application that obstructs unwelcome emails from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s rather important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a hosting
account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of protection based on the spam score given to each email message depending on different parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may skip an authentic email, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to a different email account. In case you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you will not need to worry about spam emails occupying your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can resort to the popular SpamAssassin anti-spam filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a few clicks and you can choose any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any time if, for example, genuine messages get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk messages go through and reach your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be forwarded to a special mailbox such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be erased. In this way, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on a legitimate message.
