A spam filter is a software application that hinders unwelcome messages from reaching a particular inbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. Because of this, it is pretty important to activate email filters in order to avoid not only spam email messages, but also any possibility of being duped somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – certain words and phrases or the frequency with which they surface in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound SMTP mail server. Web hosting providers often resort to the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make spam filtering better and simpler without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they include suspicious words or phrases.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

The protection of any mailbox that you create under a cloud website hosting account with us is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin filter that we employ. You can activate it via the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it offers five protection levels based on the spam score it gives to each email message depending on various criteria, such as the recurrence of particular words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may omit a genuine email message, you can combine the automated email filter with a custom one and redirect all email messages from a particular sender to a separate mailbox. In case you reach the decision that you no longer require a spam filter for a particular email account, you can disable it with only a few clicks.
