A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unwelcome emails from entering a particular mailbox. A substantial percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is pretty important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver better security – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosts often make use of the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

Our shared web hosting servers employ one of the best spam filters available on the market. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can pick one of the 5 levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the body of every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you’ve selected. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter labels as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other email account where you can review them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting a genuine email message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also astonishingly easy.
