A spam filter is an app that impedes undesired messages from entering a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s extremely important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate emails, 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 available on the market. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with every cloud web hosting package, so in case you host your domains with our company, you can pick one of the 5 protection levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then proceeds on the basis of the level that you have opted for. Each mailbox can have a different setting and you can select if the email messages that the filter labels as spam should be erased or delivered to a different email address where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email. Changing the level or deactivating the anti-spam protection is also pretty easy.
