A spam filter is an application that impedes unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, sham bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting companies frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting package from our company and if you make use of our email services, you will be able to activate spam filtering for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five different protection levels. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the best and most popular filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header field and the body of every email that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or permits it to reach your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom spam filters and either erase unwelcome email messages or send them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can view them once again later.
