An email filter is an application that impedes unwanted emails from entering a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. That is why, it’s pretty important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
The protection of any email account that you create in a cloud website hosting account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting junk emails, you can always raise the level or if you are scared that you may skip a legitimate message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all email messages from a specific sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of mouse clicks.
