A spam filter is a software app that prevents unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, etc. This is why, it is very important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Email filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the five protection levels that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve picked. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or forwarded to a separate email address where you can review them later, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email message. Changing the level or deactivating the protection is also pretty easy.
