A spam filter is a software app that obstructs unwanted emails from entering a given inbox. A large percentage of the email correspondence around the world involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, fraudulent banking notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is quite important to set up email filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Filters detect various things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – certain words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing email server. Web hosts frequently resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that offer up-to-date databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Website Hosting

With a couple of clicks of the mouse in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel, you can set up 5 separate protection levels. In case you still get spam emails or the filters start preventing authentic email messages from entering your mailbox, you can switch to some other level just as easily. The quality of our spam filtering service is guaranteed by one of the most famous spam filters – SpamAssassin. In case you do not want to risk skipping a legitimate email message that may be classified as spam because of its content, you can also set up custom email filters based on the sender, the subject or the body of the email message and re-send the emails to a different email account where you can review them at a later time.
