An email filter is a software application that impedes undesired email messages from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you create under a cloud website hosting
account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate 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 depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a separate email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than several clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated plans
, you won’t have to worry about unsolicited bulk email messages cramming your mailboxes all the time, as you can take advantage of the popular SpamAssassin spam filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated account. Our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to activate the filter for any email account with several clicks of the mouse and you can select any of the five levels of safety – from very low to very high. The level can be changed at any moment if, for instance, genuine emails get blocked, or if spam messages go through and appear in your Inbox folder. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered email messages to be delivered to a special email account such as firstname.lastname@example.org and not to be deleted. Thus, you can examine them from time to time to make certain that you haven’t missed out on an authentic email message.
