An email filter is an application that impedes unsolicited messages from entering a particular inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is very important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each cloud web hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any mailbox that you have here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of each email, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can select whether the messages that the filter labels as spam should be erased or forwarded to a different email address where you can examine them later, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also remarkably easy.
