A spam filter is an application that prevents unasked-for email messages from reaching a particular inbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, false banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it’s quite important to use filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting package from us and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of protection. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most famous spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a given email or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either erase unsolicited email messages or send them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can check them once more afterwards.
