An email filter is an application that obstructs unwelcome email messages from entering a given inbox. A huge percentage of the email communication around the world consists of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, sham banking notifications, and so on. Because of this, it’s pretty important to set up filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they appear in the text, the sender’s address, or the IP of the sender’s outbound email server. Web hosts often rely on the services of third-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases in order to make email filtering better and simpler without affecting genuine emails, even if they include suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Shared Hosting

The safety of any mailbox that you create under a shared hosting account with our company is ensured by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we use. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and it comes with five safety levels based on the spam score given to each email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of specific words and phrases, the sender, etc. If you keep receiving unsolicited bulk email messages, you can always raise the level or if you’re scared that you may miss a genuine message, you can combine the automatic email filter with a custom one and forward all messages from a certain sender to a different email address. In case you decide that you no longer need a spam filter for a specific mailbox, you can deactivate it with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
