An email filter is an app that impedes undesired messages from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email correspondence around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or money, sham banking notifications, and so on. That’s why, it is pretty important to activate email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being duped somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of security – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP address of the sender’s outgoing SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to render spam filtering easier and more efficient without affecting genuine email messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers rely on one of the very best spam filters out there. It’s called SpamAssassin and is included with every package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can pick one of the five levels of protection that the filter offers for any mailbox that you’ve got here. You can accomplish this with only 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that’s used to manage all web hosting accounts. SpamAssassin ‘scans’ the header field and the body of every message, gives it a spam score and then proceeds in accordance with the level that you’ve opted for. Each email account can have a different setting and you can select whether the emails that the spam filter classifies as spam should be deleted or redirected to some other email address where you can read them at a later point in time, so as to avoid deleting a legitimate email. Changing the level or disabling the anti-spam protection is also quite easy.
