A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is quite important to enable email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting plan from our company and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given message or allows it to enter your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either delete unasked-for messages or re-send them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can view them again at a later point in time.
