A spam filter is a software application that stops undesirable messages from reaching a particular inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is very important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better protection – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers employ one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every shared hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header and the content of each and every email, gives it a spam score and then continues based on the level that you have selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or delivered to a different email account where you can examine them later, so as to prevent erasing a genuine message. Switching to some other level or disabling the protection is also quite easy.
