A spam filter is a software app that impedes undesired messages from entering a given mailbox. An immense percentage of the email correspondence around the world is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, and so on. For this reason, it is quite important to use filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk email messages, but also any possibility of being swindled in some way. Filters detect different things, so as to deliver higher levels of protection – particular words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP address of the sender’s SMTP email server. Hosting companies frequently rely on the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that provide up-to-date databases to render email filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate emails, even if they comprise suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Web Hosting

If you order a cloud web hosting package from our company and if you take advantage of our email services, you’ll be able to set up anti-spam protection for any of the email accounts that you create from the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel. With just a couple of mouse clicks, you can select between five separate levels of security. In case you start getting spam, you can start with the lowest one and then slowly increase the level until you stop receiving spam. We use one of the very best and most popular email filters out there called SpamAssassin. It analyzes the header and the body of every message that you receive and calculates a spam score, based on which it either erases a particular email message or permits it to reach your mailbox. Hepsia will also allow you to create custom email filters and either eliminate unasked-for email messages or redirect them to a third-party address such as spam@domain.com where you can examine them once more at a later point in time.
