An email filter is a software application that impedes unasked-for messages from reaching a given mailbox. An enormous percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s very important to set up filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

If you get a shared website hosting package from us and if you use our mail services, you will be able to activate spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With only a few mouse clicks, you can choose between 5 separate levels of protection. In case you start receiving spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level until you stop getting spam. We use one of the very best and most famous email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a specific email or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also allow you to activate custom filters and either delete undesirable email messages or send them to a 3rd-party address like where you can examine them again later.
