An email filter is an app that impedes undesired email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s pretty important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound email server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic emails, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

If you get a web hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can choose between five different security levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom email filters and either get rid of unwelcome email messages or re-send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again later.
