A spam filter is a software application that hinders undesirable emails from entering a particular inbox. A significant percentage of the email communication around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it’s really important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of safety – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP mail server. Hosting providers often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering simpler and more efficient without affecting authentic email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting package from us and if you use our email services, you’ll be able to set up spam filters for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. With only several clicks of the mouse, you can pick between five different levels of security. If you start receiving spam, you can begin with the lowest one and then gradually raise the level till you stop getting spam. We make use of one of the very best and most famous spam filters available called SpamAssassin. It ‘scans’ the header field and the body of each and every email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular message or permits it to enter your inbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to configure custom filters and either erase undesirable messages or forward them to a 3rd-party address like spam@domain.com where you can double-check them at a later point in time.

Spam Filters in Semi-dedicated Servers
