An email filter is a software app that prevents unasked-for emails from entering a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s really important to activate filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP email server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Web Hosting
If you decide to host your domains with our company and you select any of our Linux web hosting service, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any email account that you set up. With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you can configure 5 different protection levels. In case you continue to get spam or the filters start preventing genuine emails from reaching your inbox, you can switch to a different level just as easily. The efficiency of our anti-spam solution is ensured by one of the most famous email filters – SpamAssassin. In case you don’t want to risk omitting a genuine email that may be blocked as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom spam filters based on the sender, the body or the subject of the email message and forward the emails to a different email account where you can view them at a later point in time.
Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
