An email filter is a software app that runs on a mail server and monitors all incoming email messages so as to obstruct any undesired ones from entering a given mailbox. A few instances of such email messages would be: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notices or attachments that contain malicious software sent with the intention of infecting your PC. Email filters typically examine the content of an email and when they spot particular keywords or other suspicious content, they either delete the message or forward it to the Junk/Spam folder instead of the Inbox folder. Certain providers combine their own spam filters with up-to-the-minute databases from spam-tracing organizations, so as to ensure better safety for their clients. Such databases contain patterns, email server IPs and other information about spam emails recently uncovered by these organizations.
Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting
The safety of any email account that you create under a cloud web hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each email depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk emails, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a genuine message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a given sender to a different mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can deactivate it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company and if you set up one or more mailboxes with any of the domains hosted under your account, you will be able to activate the powerful, five-level SpamAssassin spam filter that we provide and keep all unwanted messages out of your inbox. This option is accessible through the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it can be activated or deactivated for any email account whenever you like. You can also configure the security level with a few clicks of the mouse if spam email messages still reach your mailbox or the email filter begins erasing genuine email messages. As you can select whether the spam should be erased right away or re-sent to a separate email address, you can set up, for instance, and view all filtered emails there, so as to make certain that you will not miss an email message that you need. The messages that the email filter allows to proceed will still appear in your inbox.
