A spam filter is a software app that blocks undesired email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fake bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s extremely important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosts often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can select one of the five security levels that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all cloud hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header and the body of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve chosen. Every email account can have a different level and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter marks as spam should be deleted or re-sent to a separate email account where you can read them later, so as to prevent deleting an authentic email message. Changing the level or deactivating the spam protection is also very easy.
