An email filter is an application that hinders unasked-for emails from entering a particular mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, fake bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s really important to use filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to ensure better security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound SMTP server. Hosting companies often make use of the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with each and every hosting plan, so if you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header field and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve selected. Each email account can have a different level and you can select whether the email messages that the anti-spam filter marks as spam should be erased or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can examine them at a later time, so as to avoid erasing a genuine message. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also quite easy.
