A spam filter is a software app that hinders undesirable email messages from entering a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s very important to use email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can opt for one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each email, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the messages that the filter labels as spam should be erased or redirected to some other email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing an authentic email message. Changing the level or disabling the spam protection is also pretty easy.
