A spam filter is a software app that impedes unsolicited email messages from reaching a given inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, and so on. That is why, it is pretty important to set up email filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any chance of being tricked in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better security – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting
The protection of any email account that you set up under a shared website hosting account with us is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting spam email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re afraid that you may skip a genuine email message, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to a different email address. If you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a certain email account, you can deactivate it with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
