An email filter is a software application that stops unsolicited emails from reaching a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is very important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The security of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a genuine message, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to another mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with only a few clicks.
