A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unsolicited email messages from reaching a given inbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s pretty important to set up filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

If you order a hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five different security levels. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular email or allows it to reach your inbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom spam filters and either delete unasked-for email messages or re-send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can double-check them after that.

Changing the level of protection or disabling the protection is also easy and requires several clicks of the mouse.
