An email filter is a software app that stops undesired messages from reaching a given inbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, sham bank notifications, etc. For this reason, it is rather important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting companies often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting authentic email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting

The security of any email account that you create under a shared web 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 5 levels of protection based on the spam score it gives to each email in accordance with various criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep getting unsolicited bulk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a given sender to a different mailbox. If you decide that you no longer require a spam filter for a particular email account, you can deactivate it with only several clicks.
