An email filter is a software application that blocks unwanted messages from entering a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s very important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can opt for one of the 5 levels of safety that the anti-spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just two mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each email message, calculates a spam score and then proceeds based on the level that you have chosen. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose whether the email messages that the filter considers as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a different email account where you can read them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also unbelievably easy.
