An email filter is a software app that stops unwanted messages from reaching a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it’s quite important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up in a web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score given to each email message depending on different criteria, such as the frequency of particular words, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a legitimate message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to another mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with only a couple of mouse clicks.
