An email filter is a software app that prevents unasked-for email messages from entering a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is extremely important to use email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Spam filters detect various things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Hosting providers frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

If you order a shared web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our mail services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can select between 5 different levels of safety. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain email message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either delete undesired email messages or redirect them to a 3rd-party address like where you can check them once again afterwards.
