Find out more about spam filters - just what they are, how they work and the ways to set up one.
An email filter is an app that hinders unwelcome emails from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
The security of any email account that you set up in a cloud website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score it gives to every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving spam messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip an authentic email message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a different mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with just several clicks of the mouse.
