A spam filter is an application that stops undesirable emails from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is very important to enable filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being ripped off in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of security – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers use one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header and the content of each and every email message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the emails that the filter classifies as spam should be deleted or forwarded to another email address where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to another level or deactivating the protection is also truly easy.
