An email filter is a software application that stops unsolicited email messages from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you order a shared website hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 different levels of safety. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific message or permits it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate unsolicited emails or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like where you can examine them once again after that.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can have a different level of protection for each mailbox and you can select if the filtered emails should be erased or forwarded to a separate mailbox where you can read them later in order to ensure that you will not miss legitimate messages. Switching to some other level or disabling the spam protection is also easy and requires several clicks.
