A spam filter is a software application that impedes unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular inbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s very important to activate filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being ripped off somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Hosting providers frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting authentic emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you set up in a shared web hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we employ. You can activate it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers 5 levels of security based on the spam score given to each email in accordance with various parameters, such as the recurrence of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may skip an authentic message, you can combine the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a specific sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with no more than a few mouse clicks.
