What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does one function? How can you activate spam filtering?
An email filter is an application that impedes undesirable email messages from reaching a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is quite important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting providers frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The security of any email account that you create under a cloud hosting
account with our company is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it offers 5 safety levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam emails, you can always increase the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to a different email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer want a spam filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks.
