A spam filter is an app that impedes undesired emails from reaching a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is rather important to enable 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 guarantee better safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five safety levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can do this with just two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the body of every email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve selected. Every email account can have a different setting and you can choose whether the emails that the spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other mailbox where you can examine them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.
