An email filter is a software application that blocks undesirable emails from entering a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is really important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

If you get a cloud hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to enable spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of safety. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular filters available called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of every email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email or permits it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom spam filters and either delete unwelcome email messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party email address such as where you can check them once more later.
