A spam filter is an app that hinders unasked-for messages from reaching a particular mailbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is pretty important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being conned somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render email filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting plan from us and if you make use of our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With no more than several clicks, you can select between five different levels of security. If you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest level and then slowly increase the level till you stop receiving spam. We use one of the best and most popular email filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header and the body of each and every message that you get and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a given message or allows it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to set up custom spam filters and either erase unsolicited email messages or redirect them to a third-party address like spam@domain.com where you can examine them once again at a later point in time.
