An email filter is an application that blocks unsolicited emails from reaching a particular mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is pretty important to enable filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide better protection – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering easier and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you get a shared web hosting plan from us and if you take advantage of our mail services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a couple of clicks of the mouse, you can select between 5 different security levels. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then slowly boost the level till you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header field and the body of each and every email message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given email message or permits it to enter your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to configure custom filters and either get rid of undesirable emails or re-send them to a third-party email address such as where you can check them again at a later point in time.
