An email filter is a software app that hinders unwanted emails from entering a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – certain words 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. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you decide to host your domains with us and you pick any of our cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to enable anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a few clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can switch between 5 separate protection levels. If you still get unsolicited bulk emails or the filters start preventing legitimate emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam protection service is guaranteed by one of the most widely used spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk omitting a legitimate email message that may be classified as spam due to its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the message and forward the emails to some other email address where you can view them at a later point in time.
