An email filter is a software application that hinders undesirable messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s really important to enable filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Spam filters detect various things, so as to provide better safety – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s SMTP email server. Web hosts frequently make use of the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Shared Web Hosting
The safety of any email account that you create in a shared web hosting account with us is ensured by the advanced SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five protection levels based on the spam score given to every email message in accordance with different criteria, such as the frequency of specific words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip an authentic message, you can combine the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all messages from a given sender to a separate email account. If you reach the decision that you no longer require anti-spam protection for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than several clicks.
