A spam filter is a software app that prevents undesirable emails from entering a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it is very important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create in a shared web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 protection levels based on the spam score given to each and every email depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of given words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a certain sender to a different email account. If you decide that you no longer want a spam filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few clicks of the mouse.
