An email filter is an app that obstructs unwanted emails from reaching a given inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is pretty important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you choose any of our shared hosting services, you will be able to set up spam filtering for any email address that you create. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can configure 5 separate security levels. In case you still get spam emails or the spam filters start preventing legitimate email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection solution is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email that may be considered as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and re-send the emails to another email address where you can read them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you order a semi-dedicated server package from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domain names hosted under your account, you’ll be able to activate the advanced, five-level SpamAssassin filter that we provide and keep all unwanted messages away from your inbox. This feature is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel and it can be enabled or disabled for any email account at any moment. You can also tweak the level of protection with several clicks of the mouse if unsolicited bulk email messages still appear in your mailbox or the email filter begins deleting legitimate messages. Since you can select if the spam should be deleted instantly or delivered to a separate mailbox, you can set up [email protected], for example, and view all filtered emails there, so as to ensure that you will not omit an email that you require. The messages that the spam filter permits to go through will still appear in your mailbox.
