An email filter is an application that stops unwanted messages from reaching a particular mailbox. An immense percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. This is why, it’s extremely important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure better safety – certain words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP server. Web hosts frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five security levels based on the spam score given to every email message in accordance with various criteria, such as the frequency of given words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep getting spam, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss an authentic email, you can combine the automated spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a specific sender to some other mailbox. In case you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a certain mailbox, you can disable it with just several mouse clicks.
