An email filter is a software app that stops unwanted messages from reaching a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. This is why, it’s pretty important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages deliver excellent anti-spam protection ensured by the popular SpamAssassin filter, which ranks all inbound messages on the basis of a spam score that depends on parameters and patterns, such as the frequency of certain keywords and phrases, the sender, the subject, etc. When you activate the filter for any email account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel’s Email Manager section, you can pick between five different security levels – from very low to very high. If you still get junk messages, you can raise the level, or if authentic messages are mistaken for spam, you can decrease it. Activating or deactivating the anti-spam protection requires as little as two clicks and you can choose if the filtered email messages should be deleted immediately or if they should be forwarded to a chosen email account where you can view them at a later time, so as to ensure that the messages that you need will not disappear.
