A spam filter is a software application that blocks unwanted emails from reaching a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the globe consists of spam emails: offers for pills or money, forged banking notifications, and so on. That is why, it’s quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any possibility of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing SMTP server. Web hosting companies often use the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that provide up-to-date databases in order to make email filtering easier and more efficient without affecting authentic messages, even if they comprise 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 guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with five security levels based on the spam score given to every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always raise the level or if you are afraid that you may skip a genuine email message, you can mix the automatic filter with a custom one and redirect all emails from a particular sender to another mailbox. If you reach the decision that you no longer require an email filter for a given mailbox, you can disable it with only a few mouse clicks.
