An email filter is a software app that hinders unsolicited messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is really important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s email server. Hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a cloud web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a genuine message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a different email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of mouse clicks.
