A spam filter is an application that obstructs unasked-for email messages from reaching a given mailbox. A significant percentage of the email traffic around the world involves spam messages: offers for pills or money, fraudulent banking notifications, etc. That’s why, it’s rather important to set up filters in order to avoid not only unsolicited bulk emails, but also any chance of being scammed somehow. Email filters detect different things, so as to guarantee higher levels of safety – particular words or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s outgoing mail server. Web hosts frequently use the services of third-party spam-monitoring organizations that offer up-to-date databases in order to render spam filtering better and easier without affecting legitimate emails, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers rely on one of the very best anti-spam filters out there. It is called SpamAssassin and is offered with each shared web hosting plan, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the 5 levels of safety that the spam filter offers for any email account that you have here. You can accomplish this with only two clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage all shared hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header field and the body of each email, calculates a spam score and then continues according to the level that you’ve chosen. Every mailbox can have a different setting and you can choose if the emails that the anti-spam filter reports as spam should be deleted or forwarded to some other mailbox where you can check them at a later time, so as to prevent deleting a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or deactivating the protection is also exceptionally easy.
