What exactly is an e-mail spam filter? How does it function? How could you activate spam filtering?
A spam filter is a software application that impedes undesired email messages from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up under a cloud hosting
account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin filter that we use. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score it gives to each message in accordance with various parameters, such as the frequency of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you are scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to another email address. If you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
