An email filter is an application that blocks unwelcome email messages from entering a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s really important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosts often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from our company and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 different protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular email filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either erase unwelcome emails or re-send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them once more after that.
