A spam filter is a software application that hinders unsolicited messages from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is rather important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outbound mail server. Hosting companies frequently resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers rely on one of the best anti-spam filters available. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every web hosting plan, so in case you host your domains with us, you can select one of the 5 safety levels that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin examines the header section and the content of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have chosen. Every email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the messages that the spam filter flags as spam should be erased or re-sent to a separate mailbox where you can examine them at a later point in time, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate email. Switching to some other level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also incredibly easy.
