Find out about spam filters - what they are, the way they work and the ways to set up one.
An email filter is an app that prevents unwelcome email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is rather important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any mailbox that you create in a cloud hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to another email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse.
