An email filter is a software app that obstructs unasked-for email messages from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, fake banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is extremely important to enable filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – particular 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 server. Web hosting providers frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
The security of any email account that you create in a cloud website hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may omit a legitimate message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer need an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with just a few mouse clicks.
