A spam filter is a software application that blocks undesired messages from entering a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s pretty important to use email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – certain words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only a couple of clicks, you can pick between five separate protection levels. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly boost the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a particular message or permits it to enter your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to activate custom spam filters and either erase undesired messages or send them to a 3rd-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once more afterwards.
