An email filter is an application that prevents unasked-for email messages from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s quite important to enable email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being duped in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is available with every shared hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five levels of security that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with just 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin checks the header section and the content of every email message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select if the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or redirected to another mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the spam protection is also astonishingly easy.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers

Changing the level or disabling the protection is also easy and takes a few clicks.
