An email filter is a software application that stops undesired messages from entering a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is pretty important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Web hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

The security of any mailbox that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip an authentic message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to another email account. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a particular mailbox, you can deactivate it with no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
