An email filter is an app that blocks unwanted email messages from entering a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s really important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound email server. Hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up under a web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each message depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss a genuine email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a specific sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer need an email filter for a particular email account, you can deactivate it with just a few clicks of the mouse.
