An email filter is a software app that blocks unasked-for email messages from entering a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. This is why, it is very important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosts often make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting package from us and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can choose between 5 separate security levels. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level until you stop receiving spam. We rely on one of the very best and most popular spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of every email that you get and calculates a spam score, based on which it either deletes a specific email or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to configure custom email filters and either eliminate undesired messages or redirect them to a third-party address like where you can read them once more later.
