An email filter is an application that obstructs unsolicited messages from entering a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is quite important to activate filters in order to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being conned somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – particular words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The security of any email account that you set up in a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of security based on the spam score given to every email message depending on different parameters, such as the recurrence of given words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may miss a legitimate email message, you can mix the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a specific sender to another email address. In case you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a specific email account, you can disable it with just a few mouse clicks.
