An email filter is an application that impedes unwanted emails from reaching a given inbox. A substantial percentage of the email communication around the globe consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fake banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it is rather important to activate email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to provide higher levels of protection – specific words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP email server. Web hosts often rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting legitimate messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers rely on one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every web hosting package, so if you host your domain names with us, you can choose one of the five levels of security that the anti-spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can do this with only 2 clicks of the mouse from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the content of each and every email message, calculates a spam score and then continues based on the level that you’ve selected. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the anti-spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can review them later, so as to avoid erasing a legitimate message. Switching to some other level or deactivating the spam protection is also stunningly easy.
