A spam filter is a software app that stops unasked-for email messages from entering a given mailbox. A considerable percentage of the email communication around the globe is composed of spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, false banking notifications, etc. For this reason, it’s pretty important to set up email filters to avoid not only unsolicited bulk messages, but also any chance of being conned in some way. Spam filters detect different things, so as to ensure higher levels of safety – specific 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 server. Web hosting providers frequently use the services of 3rd-party spam-tracking organizations that provide up-to-the-minute databases to make email filtering better and easier without affecting genuine messages, even if they comprise suspicious words.
Spam Filters in Shared Hosting
The safety of any mailbox that you create under a shared hosting account with our company is guaranteed by the powerful SpamAssassin email filter that we employ. You can enable it through the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel and it comes with 5 levels of safety based on the spam score it gives to each and every email depending on various parameters, such as the frequency of certain words and phrases, the sender, and so on. If you keep receiving junk messages, you can always increase the level or if you’re afraid that you may omit a legitimate email message, you can mix the automatic spam filter with a custom one and forward all emails from a particular sender to a separate email address. In case you reach the decision that you no longer want an email filter for a certain email account, you can disable it with no more than several mouse clicks.
