A spam filter is an app that impedes unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it’s really important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s email server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with each cloud web hosting package, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header and the content of each message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the filter marks as spam should be erased or delivered to another mailbox where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting an authentic email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also amazingly easy.
