A spam filter is an app that blocks unsolicited email messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email correspondence around the world consists of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. This is why, it is pretty important to enable filters to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Email filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of security – particular words or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s email server. Web hosting providers often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to render email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting legitimate messages, even if they contain suspicious words or phrases.
Spam Filters in Website Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you set up under a website hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin spam filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five levels of safety based on the spam score given to every email depending on different criteria, such as the recurrence of certain words, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving spam, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may miss an authentic email, you can combine the automated filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a given sender to some other mailbox. If you decide that you no longer want anti-spam protection for a specific mailbox, you can disable it with only a few clicks of the mouse.
