An email filter is an application that blocks unsolicited emails from reaching a particular inbox. A large percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam emails: offers for pills or money, fraudulent bank notifications, etc. That is why, it’s rather important to enable filters in order to avoid not only spam messages, but also any possibility of being tricked somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to ensure better protection – specific words or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosting companies frequently rely on the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering simpler and more effective without affecting genuine messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Website Hosting

If you order a website hosting plan from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you will be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the mailboxes that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just several clicks of the mouse, you can select between five separate levels of safety. In case you start getting spam, you can begin with the lowest level and then gradually increase the level until you stop getting spam. We rely on one of the best and most popular spam filters available on the market called SpamAssassin. It checks the header section and the body of each email that you receive and determines a spam score, based on which it either deletes a certain message or allows it to reach your mailbox. The Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to create custom email filters and either delete unwelcome messages or send them to a third-party email address such as where you can view them once again later.
