An email filter is an application that blocks undesired messages from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is very important to use filters to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being swindled somehow. Email filters detect various things, so as to provide better security – 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 mail server. Hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers use one of the best anti-spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with each and every cloud hosting plan, so if you host your domains with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each and every message, gives it a spam score and then continues in accordance with the level that you have opted for. Each email account can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the filter classifies as spam should be erased or redirected to some other email account where you can check them later, so as to avoid deleting an authentic message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also pretty easy.
