Read more about spam filters - just what they are, how they work and ways to set up one.
An email filter is an app that stops undesired email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s quite important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting providers often use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
If you decide to host your domain names with us and you pick any of our Linux website hosting
, you will be able to activate spam filters for any mailbox that you create. With a couple of clicks in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up five separate safety levels. In case you continue to receive spam emails or the spam filters start preventing authentic emails from reaching your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The efficiency of our spam detection solution is ensured by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. If you do not want to risk omitting a genuine email that may be considered as spam because of its content, you can also configure custom filters based on the body, the subject or the sender of the message and forward the emails to another email account where you can review them at a later time.
