An email filter is a software application that prevents unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is rather important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers employ one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with every cloud web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety that the filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have picked. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the email messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different mailbox where you can check them later, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the spam protection is also extremely easy.
