An email filter is a software application that is installed on an email server and ‘scans’ all inbound messages to impede any unasked-for ones from entering a particular inbox. Several examples of such email messages would be: offers for pills or money, false bank notices or email attachments that contain malicious code sent with the idea to damage your personal computer. Spam filters normally examine the content of an email and in case they come across certain keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Spam/Junk folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain companies mix their own email filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety for their customers. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other info about spam email messages recently reported by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting
If you reach the decision to host your domains with us and you select any of our cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to activate spam filters for any email address that you set up. With a few mouse clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can set up five separate security levels. If you continue to receive spam emails or the filters start preventing legitimate messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam filtering solution is ensured by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting an authentic email that may be flagged as spam owing to its content, you can also configure custom spam filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the message and redirect the emails to another mailbox where you can view them later.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts deliver first-class spam protection guaranteed by the popular SpamAssassin spam filter, which rates all inbound email messages on the basis of a spam score in accordance with parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of specific keywords and phrases, the subject, the sender, and so on. When you activate the filter for any mailbox via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can choose between 5 separate safety levels – from very high to very low. If you continue to receive spam messages, you can raise the level, or if legitimate messages are labeled as spam, you can lower it. Enabling or disabling the anti-spam protection takes as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered messages should be deleted instantaneously or if they should be re-sent to a designated mailbox where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to make certain that valuable emails won’t get lost.
