An email filter is an application that stops unwelcome messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is extremely important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 different security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either eliminate unasked-for messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as where you can view them once more at a later point in time.
