An email filter is an app that impedes undesired messages from entering a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it is extremely important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – 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 SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the 5 security levels that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header field and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues on the basis of the level that you’ve picked. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose if the email messages that the filter flags as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a separate email account where you can review them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
