An email filter is an app that prevents unwelcome messages from reaching a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is very important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you order a website hosting
plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of security. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header section and the body of each message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either get rid of unsolicited messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party address such as firstname.lastname@example.org where you can double-check them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you take advantage of one of our semi-dedicated servers
, you won’t need to worry about junk messages cramming your mailboxes every once in a while, as you can take advantage of the famous SpamAssassin filter that we offer with every semi-dedicated server account. Our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to enable the filter for any email account with a couple of mouse clicks and you can select one of the 5 protection levels – from very high to very low. The level can be altered at any time if, for instance, authentic email messages get filtered, or if spam emails go through and reach your inbox. To take no chances, you can choose all filtered emails to be redirected to a special email account such as email@example.com and not to be deleted. In this way, you can check them every now and then to make sure that you haven’t missed out on a genuine email message.
