An email filter is a software application that obstructs unsolicited emails from entering a given mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s pretty important to use filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a cloud hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to every email in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate email, you can mix the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to some other email account. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with only a couple of mouse clicks.
