An email filter is a software app that impedes unsolicited emails from entering a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it is rather important to enable filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee better protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-detecting organizations that offer up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers use one of the best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is offered with every shared hosting package, so in case you host your domains with us, you can choose one of the 5 levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is used to manage all shared web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the content of each and every email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you have selected. Every mailbox can have a different level and you can choose whether the email messages that the spam filter classifies as spam should be erased or forwarded to a different email account where you can review them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate message. Switching to another level or disabling the protection is also quite easy.
