A spam filter is a software application that obstructs unwanted emails from reaching a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is extremely important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

The safety of any email account that you set up under a website hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each and every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. If you decide that you no longer need anti-spam protection for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
