A spam filter is an app that impedes unwanted email messages from reaching a given inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, etc. That is why, it is quite important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being conned in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – particular 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 SMTP mail server. Hosting companies frequently use the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from us and if you use our email services, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you set up from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With no more than a few clicks, you can select between five different levels of protection. If you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then slowly raise the level till you stop receiving spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters out there called SpamAssassin. It examines the header section and the body of each email message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or permits it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will also permit you to create custom email filters and either delete unwanted messages or send them to a third-party email address such as spam@domain.com where you can check them once more at a later point in time.
