An email filter is an app that impedes unwanted messages from entering a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, false bank notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Hosting
If you get a hosting
plan from our company and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just several mouse clicks, you can pick between five different safety levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or allows it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to set up custom filters and either eliminate unwanted email messages or forward them to a third-party address like email@example.com where you can view them once more later.
