An email filter is a software app that prevents undesired messages from entering a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s pretty important to enable email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between 5 separate levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom filters and either delete unwelcome messages or re-send them to a third-party email address like where you can examine them once more later.

Thus, you can examine them every now and then to make sure that you have not missed a genuine email message.
