A spam filter is a software app that hinders unsolicited emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s quite important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a web hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may skip an authentic message, you can mix the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a separate email address. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a given email account, you can disable it with only a few mouse clicks.
