An email filter is a software application that impedes undesirable messages from entering a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is rather important to use email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide better security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you get a cloud web hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to enable spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can pick between 5 separate levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly raise the level till you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header section and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either get rid of unasked-for messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like where you can view them again after that.
