A spam filter is a software app that stops undesired messages from entering a particular mailbox. A huge percentage of the email traffic around the globe involves spam email messages: offers for pills or cash, forged bank notifications, etc. That’s why, it is really important to use email filters to avoid not only spam emails, but also any chance of being swindled somehow. Spam filters detect different things, so as to deliver better security – specific words and phrases or the frequency with which they occur in the text, the sender’s email address, or the IP of the sender’s mail server. Hosting providers often resort to the services of third-party spam-tracing organizations that offer up-to-the-minute databases in order to render spam filtering easier and more effective without affecting legitimate email messages, even if they contain suspicious words.

Spam Filters in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers use one of the best spam filters available. It is called SpamAssassin and is available with each web hosting package, so in case you host your domain names with our company, you can choose one of the five levels of protection that the spam filter offers for any email account that you’ve got here. You can do this with just 2 mouse clicks from the Email Manager section of the Hepsia Control Panel that’s used to manage all hosting accounts. SpamAssassin analyzes the header section and the content of each and every message, 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 messages that the anti-spam filter considers as spam should be deleted or redirected to a different mailbox where you can view them at a later point in time, so as to prevent erasing a legitimate email message. Switching to a different level or disabling the spam protection is also pretty easy.
