An email filter is a software application that stops unwanted email messages from entering a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosts often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is included with each plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds according to the level that you’ve chosen. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter reports as spam should be erased or forwarded to another mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the spam protection is also quite easy.
