An email filter is an application that hinders unwanted email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s very important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being duped in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you create in a hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score given to each email message in accordance with different parameters, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit an authentic message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a specific sender to some other mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only a few clicks.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated hosting, you will not need to worry about unsolicited bulk emails occupying your mailboxes every now and then, as you can resort to the famous SpamAssassin email filter that we provide with each and every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any mailbox with a couple of clicks and you can select any of the 5 protection levels – from very low to very high. The level can be altered at any moment if, for example, genuine emails get filtered, or if unsolicited bulk emails go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To be on the safe side, you can choose all filtered messages to be redirected to a special email account such as spam@your-domain.com and not to be erased. Thus, you can examine them every now and then to make certain that you have not missed out on a legitimate email.
